Morning light floods the streets of New York, casting long dramatic shadows from soaring skyscrapers. A man saunters over the crossing at East 45th Street, basking in the warm sun.
In the foreground, a puddle reflects the Empire State Building towering into a blue sky, suggesting that a day of glorious sunshine is ahead.
Paul paints the scene with vibrant washes of watercolour, followed by loose ink lines to add structure. He allows the white of the paper to shine through in some areas for brilliant luminosity.

A frequent visitor to the New York streets, Paul is passionate about absorbing and drawing inspiration from this most dynamic of cities, hence reflected in this collection of original paintings and prints. Possibly the most immediately identifiable skyline in the world, the Manhattan cityscape is utterly enthralling. Whilst there are many easily recognisable skyscrapers in the skyline, walking the streets also feels intimately familiar, as the sights and sounds of timeless photographs, movies and tv shows surround you. Paul strives to bring this energy and intimacy into each of his New York cityscape paintings.
Whilst Paul is primarily known for his cityscape art of London, Paris and New York, his love of painting varied urban landscapes and skylines extends to all of the incredible cities the world has to offer. Inspired by his travels to some of the most beautiful and unique cities in the world, the Urban Landscapes Collection captures iconic scenes of city culture and life from locations such as Venice, Amsterdam and San Francisco, to name a few.
Through fine layers of watercolour in combination with rich black ink, this new collection captures the powerful depth, unique atmosphere and mesmerising light of cities such as New York, Paris and Venice. Within these paintings, Paul employs the luminous effects of watercolour on paper to depict light in the urban landscape, whether that be the glistening rain-slicked streets of New York, or the endearing glow radiating from inside a quiet Parisian café.
