Leonard Rodwell spent most of his life as a plumber and heating engineer. When he retired, he visited Blackpool Pleasure Beach, a place he confessed he hadn’t been to for over 30 years. He noted the vibrant colours of the rides and that the air was packed with fun, happiness and enjoyment. As though hit by divine inspiration, he wanted to capture this atmosphere and decided to paint a picture to hang over his fireplace. He took some pictures with a disposable camera, bought some paints and set to work.

Later, he joined the local art society, and it was there that someone offered to buy his work. The more he painted, the more he sold. So, he set himself a task to paint 100 paintings capturing the fun colours and ambiance of Blackpool’s Pleasure Beach. Sadly, Mr Rodwell passed away a couple of years ago and these paintings in the studio of his Blackpool home which are being auctioned in this online timed auction, each lot being sold with a modest £30-£50 estimate. 

Viewing by appointment only.
