THE TOWER; Oil Painting

CITYSCAPES, manchester

THE TOWER – Original Fine Art – Oil Painting – Manchester – ElizabethAFox – Abstract Painting – City Painting

On offer is this original small oil painting of tower block in the area around the canals at Media City in Salford Quays, Manchester. I find the architecture of this city an exciting subject to paint, because of the way that the old and the new is growing together and changing. Media City is entirely new, having replaced traditional houses along the network of canals and the river with this modern settlement. I love to go here to draw and photograph the shapes and light as it falls on the strange structures.

I have used an expressive thick impasto style with the brush strokes so that the oil paint is quite thick and in relief in places.

The painting is on gesso-primed canvas and stretched on a wooden stretcher. This could be hung directly on the wall or framed if preferred.

The painting is signed
