‘London River Thames by Tower Bridge Ocean Blue.’
Panoramic format. Print size 124 x 30.5 cm approx. Signed print from a limited edition of 100. From original ink drawing to which I apply colour digitally. Printed on fine art paper using archival inks.
The name of this print reflects the point of view and it comprises: the CitizenM Tower of London Hotel, 41 Tower Hill, the Tower of London with the Bell, Tower, the Beauchamp Tower, the Traitors’ Gate, the Royal Armouries White Tower, the Lanthorn Tower, the Salt Tower, the Cradle Tower, the New Armouries, Tower Bridge House, 1 St Katherine’s Way, The Tower Hotel, Tower Bridge. In the distance Canary Wharf with the HSBC Building, One Canada Square, the Newfoundland Building and the The Wardian, West Tower. And on the South Bank of the River, Anchor Brewhouse Horselydown, Butler’s Wharf West and City Hall along the Thames River Bank.
This print belongs to a tonal collection named ‘Ocean Blue’. It reflects the aquamarine colours of the sea I encountered one summer day walking on the Palace Pier in Brighton with the ‘Big Blue’ underneath my feet glistening through the cracks between the planks of the wooden deck. And later lounging on a deck chair watching the English Channel framed in the horizon by the white lattice of Victorian wrought iron railings.
