The Crowd at County

Lucy Burgess

The Crowd at County - Lucy Burgess

Lucy’s frequent visits to see the Hatters as a teenager inspired her 'Crowd at County' painting, and following their ups and downs over the years she decided to put paint to canvas to capture the atmosphere of the crowd enjoying the match.

Looking through some old football negatives from the 70's, a decade that style and taste seemed to forget, Lucy wanted to capture the nostalgic and evoke some memories for fans off all ages.
