Brighton Pavilion Finial and Domes Regency Nights



‘Brighton Pavilion Finial and Domes Regency Nights’

Print description

Full of mystery, this luminous print depicts a close up of the architecture of the Brighton Royal Pavilion . The colour palette of this piece relates to the specific Regency colours found at the Brighton Pavilion Chinoiserie interiors. Hence the light sepia colour of the render finish of the building is replaced with gold over the dragon scale friezes, carmine for the onion domes, Gothic Prussian blue applied to the jali screens and Turner’s patent yellow on the diamond crenelated parapet and octagonal pinnacles. Other sources of inspiration are the crimson, blues and gold leaf that is found in medieval and early renaissance paintings.

Print details

I created this print from my original ink drawings to which I apply colour digitally. Printed on fine art paper using archival inks. I issue the formats A0, A1 & A2,A3 and A4  as limited editions of 100 where I individually sign and number each print.

Photograph of the base drawings for the art print. I draw these with black ink on A3 sheets of specialised marker paper with calligraphic brushes, fine-line ink pens, sponges, sand paper and other materials. I scanned these to form the main line work and patterns in the final print.

Brighton Royal Pavilion

John Nash remodelled The Brighton Royal Pavilion into what we can see today in glorious  Indo-Saracenic style. The works of the Marine Pavilion began in 1815 and took seven years to complete. George chose architect John Nash who proposed an Indian style in response to the design of the new stable block. Nash was also inspired by landscape gardener Humphrey Repton (who had published designs for a new palace based on Indian architectural forms) and based many of his ideas on a publication called Oriental Scenery by Thomas and William Daniell (1795-1808).

The complex composition of domes, towers and minarets created a romantic exterior. Either side of the central large dome are two towers that serviced the interior rooms over the Saloon, one with a staircase, the other with a hoist. To achieve a picturesque effect the rendered surfaces of the Royal Pavilion were painted to create a unified vision of a building made of Bath stone.
