In this London scene, pedestrians enjoy a leisurely stroll along the South Bank, whilst taking in the breathtaking sights of the city skyline. Painting with a palette of blues and greens, Paul captures the summery feel-good weather of the day. Paul leaves lots of aluminium exposed on the walkway to allow for gleaming reflections of light and movements, further bringing the scene to life. In the distance, a London red bus is seen dashing over a bridge, in contrast to the relaxed atmosphere of the South Bank.
You might also enjoy these other London paintings from Paul's 365 Project. This was a year-long journey exploring a different range of mediums & working at sizes often smaller, than with his studio pieces. In many cases these formed the studies behind the larger studio works.
This collection of dynamic original cityscape and abstract paintings of the UK capital reflects Paul’s love of London’s urban landscape and skyline, one of the most recognisable in the world. The skyline features a unique blend of buildings both old and new that distinguishes the London cityscape from so many other capitals. Using a range of mediums, from oils to watercolours, acrylics to pastels, Paul strives to represent this iconic element of the city’s culture in all his paintings, always seeking to best highlight the diversity of the architecture and to encapsulate the multitude of moods this provokes.
