In February 2016, the Shard will have been open for 3 years. I wonder how many people have enjoyed the iconic view of London with a glass of champagne?
My contemporary piece, "Room with a View" is a work-in-progress, mixed media celebration of this amazing building and I am aiming to finish the piece by February next year.
I recently read an statement from an Artist who explained that he continues to add detail, then overpaint and then return to adding to a painting...until he is satisfied that he has, in effect, "got it right".
When painting with watercolour, I generally can't alter a piece of art in this way. However "Room with a View" has been created with different mediums. So far I have used a mixture of chalk, acrylic and oil and with the flexibility of these mediums, this painting is giving me a fabulous opportunity to explore by adding and changing detail as I progress.
I will share the finished painting, hopefully just before February 2016, and then maybe return to the Shard to celebrate ;-)
