A Stroll Across Tower Bridge
Original Contemporary Landscape Painting by Artist Diane Griffiths.
Acrylic and enamel on canvas with painted sides, 91x122cm/36×48″ (2016).
Work in Progress
This is my largest canvas to date and definitely introduced many new challenges which working on a canvas bigger than you brings! I built up the painting as I normally do; working up the layers, however I had to split up the painting into sections in order to make it manageable. You can see that I started with the sky, then added in Tower Bridge and then the buildings on the south bank – then going back and forth to each element.
This was a hugely challenging piece and I had to keep swapping from the detail out to the overall picture and back in again to ensure I wasn’t losing sight of the overall effect.
As the sun sets in this painting I wanted to capture the traffic trails that are generated when you take a photograph in low light but with a long exposure.
