Brick Stable

Painting Description

A red brick stable is not unusual in this part of Britain. The light from behind enhanced the appeal of this scene. I thought the combination of red and green in the view most attractive.

Hurst Road is a small side road in the Newcastle upon Tyne area of England. Without Google street view, I doubt that I would ever have gotten to this rural area. Following my nose on street view has taken me to many places, often to backwaters that I would not have visited in the U.K. even though I have vacationed there over 40 times. I happened upon this building because I was searching the area around Biddulph Grange, a major historical house that has a garden that my wife suggested we should visit sometime.

I should mention as well that the views that street view takes with their format are quite different from the angles that I would have chosen had I physically been on the spot. That forces me to look at different possibilities.
