Well it does have to be said that we are a bit late with this blog, but it’s been a hectic couple of weeks, however it’s still worth writing about.

Having been approved to paint the old pump house wall opposite The Nova Scotia pub in Hotwells, Graham Paris (of recent Tags to Riches fame), set about researching the history of Bristol Docks and, taking inspiration from Victorian artists such as John Atkinson Grimshaw, produced this artists impression.

 Could this really be achieved with aerosols alone?

After four hard days jet washing and preparing the wall, Paris set to work, armed with what seemed like the whole Belton colour range!

The magic took place over 3 days, maybe it wouldn’t have taken quite so long if the sun hadn’t been out and there hadn’t been a pub quite so near, but hey these things can’t and shouldn’t be rushed!

To see the fully finished product, next time the sun is out and you have some spare time, get yourself down to the Nova Scotia, buy a pint and enjoy.
