Bygone Carlisle: Lonsdale Cinema

Bygone Carlisle: Lonsdale Cinema
2.5 x 3.5 Inch



Designed by Architects Percy L. Browne & Son of Newcastle
The Lonsdale Cinema opened on 21st September 1931, and finally closed in 23rd April 2006.
Sadly this lovely Art-Deco building has been eternally lost to Carlisle for a few years now, having now been demolished, and is a car park for the Halston Hotel (former GPO).

Wow -- a lot of detail for such a tiny painting! I like it but not its sad story.

I bet this painting rings a bell with many older picture-goers here in England, Dominic. Certainly does with me. Well captured.

How in the world do you get so much detail in such a small painting? Does your brush have just one hair on it? Small or not, I really like your painting.

There's actually not that much detail compared to a large painting, the brain just fills it in, here is a larger scan of part of image, you will see what I mean

BTW: smallest brush I used was a 00 - have much smaller for "detailed" work - lol
