Cheltenham Paint Festival, Gloucestershire

If you live in or around Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, you may have noticed a lot of graffiti popping up around town in aid of Cheltenham’s Paint Festival. One lunchtime, I walked up the Honeybourne Line to catch more of a glimpse of what had been going on.

The artwork was insane. The artists are incredibly talented and the succession of pieces along the old bridges were amazing.

There were stencils from John Doe..

Finishing off with the most incredible wall mural from My Dog Sighs at the University of Gloucestershire’s Hardwick Campus. I stood in amazement for ages and looking back at the photos now, still am in awe!

There were also little spots of nature along the way, which made for a refreshing lunchtime stroll – would this really be my post without any nature photos thrown in?!
