My cityscapes have an energy and it is as if the reflections in the water create the opposite energy to the noise and busyness of the city creating an atmosphere of calm, flow and peace.
Either working on a commission or a piece which resonates with me I always start by looking at as many pictures as possible. I then build up a collage to place next to my canvas as a reference. I never copy 100% to a pictue or painting, I go with how I am feeling the painting is asking to look.
After preparing the canvas with a Gesso wash, I then set about dividing the canvas in 3. The sky, making sure I have enough space for my signature swish. The middle: always starting with my bold black line and finally the bottom, allowing enough for the reflection. I then measure and drawing ‘to scale’ al a Trish.
Stage 1. Draw skyline and create out lines by using credit card and water colours.
(allow to dry, or leave over night between each process)
Stage 2: Introduce my lovely pinks, gold metallic and white.
Stage 3: Using the edge of the credit card and bold black acrylic, to enhance all the lines of the buildings.
Stage 4: I finish with my signature skyline swish.
Stage 5: Sign the piece then spray varnish to finish.
Depending on size and detail.
Anything from 2 weeks to 2 months.
