"Looking west across Canary Wharf towards the City of London and Westminster! I was asked to paint this picture by a collector who already had a couple of important originals of mine. So I made a video of the process that you can see on my website here www.colinruffell.com/videos
The video shows how I use acrylic paints that I apply with brushes and rollers. I love the effect of thick impasto and thin glazes. And of course I love the view looking west across London at sunset showing Tower Bridge and the Shard and the City of London with the River Thames and Westminster. " CR
‘Signed and Numbered Edition’
NEW WORLD LONDON by Colin Ruffell
Signed and numbered Fine-art print
NEW WORLD LONDON is one of the London cityscape pictures from my portfolio of giclee fine-art prints.
Visiting famous places is one of the most fascinating things that I have ever done. Of course I am lucky because I was born in London which is crammed with iconic venues. But over the years I have visited, and painted, lots of other wonderful places. All over the world.
This is how I do it.
Go and see the place whenever possible. Make sketches or plein air painting, take photos, gather background information. Bring back to my studio here in Brighton UK.
Then I can paint the original painting. Next I scan the image to make a master digital file. We own a wide format Epson giclee printer meaning that I can make my own test proofs, then print-on-demand to the highest international standards providing a valuable investment for your fine-art collection.
