Taxi Dreaming - Original New York Taxi Cityscape Painting by UK Contemporary Artist Paul Kenton, from the Watercolour Collection

Taxi Dreaming

25.5″ x 40″

Watercolour and Ink on Indian Paper

Amongst the misty greys of this urban New York City scene, three dazzling yellow taxis emerge with beaming headlights. A pedestrian appears from the shadows of the sidewalk to make their way over the illuminated crossing.

The fluidity in which Paul applies the paint creates the impression of drenched streets after a heavy downpour. You can almost hear the sound of the taxi’s splashing through the rain-slicked streets.

Painting with bold expressive brush marks, Paul allows the watercolour pigment to settle in the pits of the paper to create a highly textured effect.

This piece is painted onto very thick, handmade Indian paper, with ‘torn’ edges. Rather than using a more conventional framing method, which is not practical with paper this thick, this piece is framed using a beautiful ‘Floating Frame’ technique, where the artwork is mounted to a backboard to reveal all of those fantastic edges, with the clear acrylic face of the frame suspended a couple of centimetres above the surface, making for a unique complete piece of art. The accompanying image shows a close-up of the artwork floating within its frame.
