Time Periods Challenge: 11 – Industrial Revolution

An artist I absolutely love and associate strongly with the Industrial Revolution in Britain is L. S. Lowry whose paintings depicted the (grim!) north of England after industrialisation, with factories, mills and terraced houses, but also with quirky little stick figures and even stick-dogs filling the street scenes.

I wanted to base my nails on his paintings and particularly liked a painting titled Industrial Landscape. I used elements of this painting but I’m not sure it turned out as well as I hoped it would – it was pretty difficult to get the feeling of the painting on my little nails!
