Cricklewood Station Mural

NorthWestTWO Residents’ Association is delighted to be working with local artist, Alistair Lambert on more artwork at Cricklewood Station.  NorthWestTWO RA want to bring a positive reaction for people entering or leaving Cricklewood and the array of artwork at the Station has been received very positively by local residents and businesses.    Thanks to the Passenger Benefit Fund and GTR Govia this is the first of several projects being delivered at Cricklewood Station

Photos of the project as the mural develops……………..

Pearl White, well known american silent movie star, making the most of the photo op when about to take a drafty ride from Cricklewood to Paris in the former front gunner’s cockpit of an HP 0/400 conversion in 1920.
I love the look on pilot R.H.Mcintosh’s face. One of my favourite images found when researching Cricklewood Aerodrome.
She’ll be making an appearance in the cricklewood station mural.

Top team: Barbara @beyer.ba starting to mark out the framework from a stencil whilst Debra @a_slow_stitch works on the colour scheme on the computer.
Laser cut stencil sheets are go!  So much easier than making out the whole thing by hand… I hope.  Photo of artist, Alistair Lambert
 
Still tweaking the colours layout. It’s so much easier digitally than in the real world.
