City Hall – Original Painting

About the image:

In the painting of City Hall London, I was finally moving to the abstract. The focus was on the shapes that made up the building.

City Hall, nestling on the bank of the Thames. We see nothing of the river here, nor any surrounding buildings. Just the building, colours and glass. The image makes an abstract of the architectures shapes and colours. Textures are built up into sections which combine with adjacent areas to form a whole. You can see City Hall as a building, or a grid of adjacent patterned areas. Look closely and you delve into pure abstract.


Creation: 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.
