Grey Street always makes an attractive scene for a Christmas Card.

A limited palette has been used to capture the crispness of a winter’s day in Newcastle, the shoppers on Grey Street.

In 2008 I released one of my most successful limited edition prints titled “Theatre Royal in the Snow”. The appeal lay partly in the monochromatic colours that were punctuated by the little girl wearing the red coat. She is one of my granddaughters, braving the elements, holding her grandmother’s hand. It wasn’t the first time I’d captured this scene in watercolour. A few months earlier I painted a smaller A4 version as a Christmas card for the Theatre Royal in Newcastle.

A few years later I was commissioned to do another Christmas card which you can read about in an earlier blog post. This time it was for a local charity (who were called the Cyrenians) who work with vulnerable, disadvantaged and homeless people. They are now called Changing Lives. I re-painted the subject, changed some of the figures and altered the composition slightly.

In 2012 I published “Grey Street, Snow Shower” as a limited edition print which is now sold out.
