Greenwich Geometry – Original Painting
About the Image:
The development of Greenwich in recent times has been rapid with some fascinating architecture emerging as a result. The central building is relatively conventional shape but for the mosaic tiling. Then there’s the dome. This is the view from under the canopy with one of those space age turbines on the right. It’s an intriguing combination. I was particularly drawn to the shapes they create and with the geometry of those tiles.
How the image is created: Masking fluid is painted onto watercolour paper to create an image. This is covered with a watercolour wash and covered with clingfilm. The picture is further developed using acrylic inks once the film is removed. The masking is removed after several layers are added and allowed to dry. Revealing the final picture.
