Painted in 2020 for the ‘Toffee Town’ exhibition at The Yorkshire Gallery in Halifax’s Piece Hall. Halifax has the most beautiful town hall. It’s a building that I love so I saved this one to paint last in the Toffee Town series. It seems to stand apart, ornate and in warm gold stone. It was designed by Charles Barry who also designed The Houses of Parliament. This piece is on display at The Yorkshire Gallery from September 26th 2020. Prints are available from The Yorkshire Gallery and Heart Gallery from that date. They will be available online from October 27th.
