Piccadilly Night


Piccadilly Night
25.5cm x 20.5cm. 10in x 8in.
Oil. on canvas board
Night fell and the lights and neon hoarding at Piccadilly Circus took over the sky, like a firework display in blocks! I was mesmerised by the bright colour's against the inky black shapes. This is possibly the closest I will ever get towards a little abstract, I got very involved with the black! Actually, in this painting there is no black, rather a deep inky purple made from Prussian blue and Alizerian crimson, it gives the painting a velvety quality that does not really show up here.

This painting is for sale, unframed :100 pounds (UK) 198 dollars (USA) and 135 euros (Europe).
This includes the postage.
And here is what it would look like in a frame,
it is sold unframed but I quite like seeing what it would look like in its "going out clothes"!
