211 - RIDLEY ARMS HOTEL, BLYTH - DAVE EDWARDS - COLOURED PENCILS - 2008 by 


This is a picture of the Ridley Arms Hotel in Blyth, Northumberland, England. All I had to go from was an old pencil sketch someone did many decades ago and a newspaper cutting showing a black and white photo of the pub when it was halfway through being demolished in the 1960s. The colours are based on the style of local buildings. I used artistic licence for the chimneys, making them of red brick instead of grey stone, to contrast better with the blue sky. I used coloured pencils on A3 sized paper.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    A3 now Dave, so bigger and better. Your transforming from monotone to colour works well. I usually look for your ‘corner stone’ curvy bits and sure enough there they are on your hips – the roof hips that is…and a corner stone. Well done!

  • Never mind Bend It Like Beckham … here you have Bend It Like Blythart :)) Thanks for the comments Brian.
