We observed the Swift GRB 190311A (Troja et al, GCN 23946) with the 2-m Liverpool Telescope located in La Palma, Spain. The observation started 
at 02:19:56 UT on March 12, 2019 (t-t0 =  11.94 hours). We obtained 5x60 seconds exposures each in g', r', and i'. We clearly detected the 
optical afterglow inside the Swift-XRT error circle given of Goad et al. (GCN 23950). We measure the following magnitudes

g' = 22.18 +- 0.24 mag,
r' = 21.70 +- 0.13 mag,
i' = 21.54 +- 0.18 mag.

Magnitudes were derived against 9 nearby stars from the SDSS catalogue and are in the AB system.
