By Sarah Connell
This painting by local artist Sarah Connell depicts a match day at Maine road, the former home of Manchester City football club. Hoards of Man City fans, dressed in the club’s trademark sky blue colours, make their way towards the brightly lit stadium.
A Manchester Evening News bus punctuates the image with a burst of intense yellow adding vibrancy to the image.
Sarah Connell perfectly captures the buzz and anticipation of the build up to a game through her lively, impressionistic style of painting.
Over its 80-year history, Maine Road saw club legends Colin Bell, Bert Trautmann and Francis Lee grace the pitch as well as hundreds of thousands of avid city supporters. It’s an ideal gift for any Manchester City fan and an opportunity to own a wonderful piece of art.
Sarah Connell is a Manchester based artist who describes her artwork as focusing on light, atmosphere and colour. Through her work, she captures many of Manchester's most iconic scenes and landmarks
