Work for the Shard
I was asked to produce some work for the shop at the Shard. These are the two images they chose. They are printed on small canvases - nice and easy to take home as souvenirs. I had a wonderful visit to the viewing platform and was almost overwhelmed by what I could see - it was almost too much to take in. It would be nearly impossible to try to make an image of the whole of London, so I narrowed it down to the river and bridges. The idea for the Shard at night came later, looking through my resource of scraps. I would still like to tackle the obvious view - The Tower of London, looking like a little toy fort with Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast in the foreground - perhaps another time.
