This is a classic building, recently restored by the Council. I chose this vantage point because I didn't want to include Spa bridge, instead I prefered the view towards Crescent Gardens, love the iron work, people reading . The youngsters have been encouraged to visit the musuem, well it could be half-term.

  On the finished print I have shaped the plate to mirror the shape og the builting.

Price unframed £185.00
