Across the Glowing Bridge – Original Painting
About the Image:
A painting of St Pauls Cathedral as seen from the Millennium Bridge at Night.
St Paul’s, stands marble white against a Prussian blue sky. The colour morphs into cadmium yellow and red earth before being lost into depths of darkness. The glowing city bounces light around the scene and reflects light on the water and through gaps in the trees.
The blue path glows like neon lights and outlined figures are frozen in time as they make their way to the North bank.
How many are there? The nearest group comprises 3 individuals but it’s easy to imagine more or less.
The handrail has become a fiery waterfall, dripping through down to the Thames below. As you follow the handrail towards St Paul’s, the rail darkens and solidifies. In the sky to the left, a tantalising feature pokes its head up from behind the darkness. What is it? Part of St Paul’s? Perhaps… It’s hard to tell at this distance.
On the right, windows become abstract paintings, indistinct, yet unique. It’s late in the evening and there are a few people around. Where are they headed, I wonder?
This painting of St Pauls entices you to look closely and let your imagination run wild. The city at night, alight with possibilities and it’s far too early to head home just yet.
