And this, I believe to be the final draft. I hope so. I am just starting to get tired of it being continually on the easel
However as cautiously as I can say, I am happy with it. I have kept within the terms of the commission, which was not easy, whilst at the same time, adding something myself to stop this being five copies of five photographs.
The Canary Wharf skyline has had some shadows added which have helped the definition. The little cranes even give a feeling of distance
Lensbury Circus, the second picture, that was difficult. Never easy to make anything of office blocks with lots of windows, we usually have an interesting sky or something to alleviate the sterility of square buildings. Not in this case as we are working with five vignettes, so all I could think of was to put some extra shadow over the front of the building and abstract those windows. More of an impression really
Bottom right, the pub, I think worked well. I used Cadmium Yellow for the umbrellas and the plants, which I think worked in conjunction with the violet used on the front of the building
The other two images I talked about on the last post, and still the little ferry boat is my favourite
The client is away until the end of June, so I will present the finished work then with fingers crossed under the table
