This is a painting of New York at night taken from a high building. It was immensely complicated to draw and paint. The drawing alone took over six weeks initially. To understand what was involved, I used a small photograph and scaled it up onto a canvas 36x24. This process required firstly the drawing of half inch squares on both the photo (via a 27" computer screen) and on the canvas, before any drawing began. The number of squares created was 72x48 = 3456!! Because the photo was small and not as high resolution as ideally needed, there were times, when I had to blow up sections of the original picture and study it through a magnifying glass, to ensure I was drawing the right lines at the right angle in the right location!! The actual painting took a 3 further months. I think the end result justified the effort and it's overall accuracy mixed with a slightly impressionistic feel really does give a powerful and beautiful impression of New York. This is not a painting I am ever

About the Artist
