Independent Fine Artist: Painting | Drawing | Digital
2009: British Embassy, Madrid
Brief: To create a large scale digital painting that represents London. The artwork should be designed so it is integrated as part of the interior in the British Embassy in Madrid. In association with Michael Boitier from Workplace Art Consultancy.
Stage one: A proposed idea for the artwork. This was a very exciting opportunity to push both myself and my hardware to the limits.
Stage two: Four months in the making, I finished the digital painting. Within Photoshop the image size was 270 x 970cm and the working file size was 28GB. It was hard work, both I and the British Embassy are very happy with the end result.
Detail: Looking towards the City, Tower 42 and the Gherkin.
Detail: Looking towards Canary Wharf over the South Bank and Waterloo Station.
Detail: Canary Wharf.
Detail: Westminster in the foreground, National Gallery and the Mall in the midground with the BT Tower and Saint Paul's in the background.
The artwork had to be spliced in to ten panels for printing and installation. Final print was produced in Madrid and was printed on a Formica solid surface.
