London River Thames by Westminster Bridge Ocean Blue
‘London River Thames by Westminster 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.
This print is a comprehensive view of the Bank of the river Thames from Westminster Bridge. In View are: Scotland Yard, Victoria Embankment, The Monument to the RAF, The Royal Air Force Memorial, The Adelphi Building, The Savoy Hotel, The Hungerford Bridge and Golden Jubilee Bridges, The Barbican, The Festival Hall, St Paul’s Cathedral, The London Television Centre, The South Bank Tower, The Shell Centre, The London Eye, The County Hall with the London Aquarium, The South Bank Lion, also known as the Red Lion, St Thomas’ Hospital and The Westminster Bridge over The Thames.
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.
