The Shard rises up out of the London metropolis, lit by dazzling rays of light bursting through the clouds. Tarnished copper creates a rich brown patina that suggests the intersection of clouds and light in the sky. To encourage stunning reflections, Paul leaves copper exposed to form the Thames as it cuts a calm path through the city. Similarly, leafy trees edged in fluid dripped lines also break up the architectural lines of the capital, and complement the earthy tones of the piece. To finish, Paul layers the painting with liquid resin to give added shine.
