Spring Garden Road Panorama
This acrylic painting is slightly concave and 6ft.x2ft.. The bulk of the painting was done on the central library lawn in Halifax. The birds eye view allows the viewer to enter into the painting while they walk through the city. For reference i used google earth, sketches and photographs, but most of the time it was memory. My mind focuses on a memory of a place, street corner, building and becomes a swollen iconic image in the composition.
The painting is in my studio for 3 coats of glaze, more detail painting and sharpie detail, and will be on display this Monday for a week in the Park lane mall.
