Liverpool artwork of the day – Tuesday July 3 2007. ‘Hope Street at Night’ Acrylic on Canvas by Elaine Preece Stanley
Living just around the corner from here I know this is just what Hope St. looks like on a wet night with the Cathedrals and Philharmonic Hall illuminating the scene.
‘ After graduating at Liverpool Hope University in 1999, I am now working as a full-time painter.
I have been painting mostly townscapes that remain romantic in every sense, sometimes extravagantly theatrical. I have a hunger for colour which is apparent in my paintings and is often exaggerated as I like to look back in nostalgia and fantasy. ‘
