The sun burns bright as it sets over London, casting long purple shadows from pedestrians enjoying a stroll along the Thames. A blissful moment of tranquility is captured in the usually bustling capital city. Looking into this scene, its easy to imagine the warmth of the evening sun on your skin and the gentle breeze in the air. Painted with a contrasting pallete of rich oranges and blues, this piece has a brilliant vibrancy. Finished with Paul’s signature dripping technique to add detail and final flourishes.
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.
