The view east along the Thames, as a fleeting moment of sunlight lights up this prominent icon in London’s skyline. Against an overcast sky, the Shard is formed with silver leaf to portray its glassy shine. Light catching the ripples in the Thames is emphasised by more silver leaf, giving this piece the unique ability to reflect the light of your space.
Using a wet-on-wet technique, Paul allows the paint to subtly blend and drip to give the impression of heavy ominous rainclouds overhead. Paul’s finishes this piece with his signature drip effect to add fluid structure and line.
This piece combines a variety of mediums, including photography, dripped paint and silver leaf.

This collection of dynamic cityscapes and abstracts 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. Paul strives to reresent 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.
