‘United London’ allows you to immerse yourself in the far-reaching London skyline at dusk. As the day draws to a close, final golden rays light up the city, creating stunning contrasts with the blues of the sky.
Paul painted this piece by building up a dense collection of textured marks and lines. He then layered fluid resin to give added shine and seamless blends of colour in the sky.
The River Thames is depicted with unpainted glimmering aluminium, flowing across the piece towards the London Eye in the distance. Other landmarks featured are the Shard, the Cheese Grater and the Gherkin.
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.
