I posted a few paintings on Twitter recently of the work I did in Greenwich, London. These were picked up by The Greenwich Visitor Magazine who asked to do a feature on them. Naturally I accepted. Very decent of them.

ARTIST Liam O’Farrell captures historic yet quirky Greenwich in these wonderful images that went down a storm on social media last month. When he posted black and white sketches followed by finished works they got an instant response.
- @VeganJase said “Brilliant drawing Liam. Always love going to Greenwich. A little piece of my childhood right there.”
- @AndersonJG wrote “Love this Liam. Great work.”
Even the Royal Observatory approved, saying:
- @RMGreenwich “Beautiful drawing Liam – we love it!”
Liam, based in the West County, told The Greenwich Visitor: “I lived in London for 23 years and I often popped over to Greenwich. “I’ve come back often to enjoy the slightly slower pace that Greenwich offers.
“Of course I take my paints too as the architecture is second to none – as is the food in Greenwich Market! You’re always a tourist in London, no matter how many years you have lived there.”
Liam has exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Royal Society of British Arts and as far afield as Tokyo. His paintings are available to buy and he also accepts commissions. He explains: “As an artist I cherish the ordinary in things in life. Although much of my work is architectural the core influences are all about the people.”
