London Sky 04

£220.00 Sold Out

Original oil painting on paper. London Sky is a series of painting meditations inspired by the colours of the dawn twilight. 

The paintings are made with under layers of zinc white and copper pigments which create a sense of light through the coloured over layers. At first glance and from a distance the paintings can appear almost completely flat as if in a photographic print. With a closer look the traces of a maker becomes apparent; irregularities in the line between the edge of the painting and the paper edges, soft textures in the paint, subtle scrapes and indentations from the palette knives used to apply the paint and the texture of the paper through the surface of the chalky pastel coloured pigments. 

Oil on 300gsm Arches oil paper 


The painting is signed on the back.
