Many a quaint English village has a weekly market dating from medieval times. My painting of a Wednesday village market depicts the uniqueness of this much loved English tradition.
Village Market by David J Ansell
David J Ansell was brought up in the northern seaside town of Fleetwood in Lancashire. From a very young age he discovered that he had a natural ability for drawing. Ansell’s influences are the caricature drawings of Arnold Taylor, that he encountered on the postcards that filled the many gift shops along the promenade, and the works of the great Northern artist, L.S. Lowry.
David J Ansell’s paintings are drawn from memory and imagination and are a wonderful snapshot of a bygone era.
