Earlier this year I was approached by the charity The Cyrenians based in Newcastle. They work with vulnerable, disadvantaged and homeless people. Sian Thomas, their marketing administrator, asked if they could use some of my paintings as Charity Christmas Cards This was to help raise money for the charity which has been going for over 40 years.
Over the last 30 years, I know that many of the paintings I have produced have raised thousands of pounds through being reproduced as Charity Christmas cards. Many have been for the Marie Curie cancer care, so I was more than happy to oblige.
We’ve decided to do three paintings of Newcastle. The first of which is this classic scene of the Theatre Royal in Winter. The first version was a sell out limited edition print. I’ve painted a similar view recently which I reproduced as a limited edition print. It’s titled Grey Street, Snow Shower.
This new watercolour of the Theatre Royal in Winter is also available as a limited edition print. There are only 45 copies in the edition.
I hope to finish the other two paintings, one of the Tyne Bridges, the other of the Angel, soon. So watch this space.
