Sketching London – A3 Reproduction Giclee Print
About the image:
Having seen so many composite pictures of London, I wanted to create a version that emphasised the new, contemporary side to the city. Sketching London is the result.
Fancy taking a sketching trip around modern London? This painting is an original view of today’s London in a beautiful sketch montage of contemporary architecture. featuring some of it’s most iconic and stylish new architecture. Created in Cathy’s unique style it includes The Shard, The Lloyds Building, Millennium Dome, London Eye, City Hall and The Gherkin alongside more traditional favourites of St Pauls, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, HMS Belfast and Tower Bridge. A great way to remember a fantastic city.
How the original Painting was created
All copyrights are retained by the artist, and that the artwork cannot be reproduced without consent from Cathy Read. This is an A3 Giclee Print. The original picture was initially drawn with pencil onto watercolour paper. These lines were then drawn over using masking fluid and then painted using watercolour paint and acrylic ink. Salt was also used in the process and some of the ink blown around using a straw. Once the painting was dry the masking fluid was removed to reveal the finished painting.
