London landmarks series

Tower Bridge step by step

Recently I’ve experimented with different colours and landmarks rather than purely imaginary scenes. Ive substituted greys for the brighter blues of the skies and darker muddier greens for trees and shrubs. Ive focused on London and have tried to evoke an atmosphere of the old victorian city with additional fog and mist giving the scenes a sinister feel. Ive looked at adding yellow to the cloud laden sky to add a bit of warmth overall. Starting with a rough sketch I’ve added warmer colours to bring out the shape of the bridge from the angle of a boat on the Thames.

I decided also to insert a colourful aspect to the piece in the form of a bus initially as an abstract blur then later experimenting removing it then re-inserting it with more detail and bright lights.
