What a view! This is the stunning view from the Panoramic 34 Restaurant in Liverpool. Julie Colclough could not resist painting this after a wonderful afternoon tea at the Panoramic with her family. It was an extremely complicated composition to draw, but well worth it to include so many iconic Liverpool buildings such as the two cathedrals, the Liver Buildings and St. John’s Beacon.
The original painting quickly SOLD. Frame size 27.5 inches x 19 inches ( 70cm x 48cm).
A small edition of limited prints is available from £95 (unframed) or framed from £250.
Painted in memory of Julie’s father who took the Mersey ferry each morning to serve his war-time apprenticeship at Bibby’s (and spent nights up on the roof on fire duty, spotting enemy aircraft with binoculars). He won a scholarship to the University of Liverpool, started his first job for Alfred Holts Blue Funnel line earning £500/year, working his way up to Chief Engineer before moving to Cammel Lairds & then UKAEA. Also in memory of Julie’s Grandad who went to sea at 14 after leaving Liverpool’s Seamen’s Orphanage, and a great-grandad who was a cook and baker for Cunard on the old liners to New York. So many family stories to tell, this restaurant is the perfect place to gaze in wonder and remember, while eating fabulous food.
