" Looking East towards Brighton's Palace Pier on a hot Summer day. There used to be two active piers when we first moved to Brighton. The Palace Pier shown here was the furthest east. It was renamed Brighton Pier for a while by new owners, but locals always knew it as Palace Pier. The other one was along the beach westwards, just before the border between Brighton and Hove, and it was called The West Pier. Hmm! That one has fallen into a sad state of disrepair and is now little more than an arrangement of rusty girders in the sea." CR
PIER by Colin Ruffell
Signed and numbered Fine-art print
PIER is one of the Brighton cityscape pictures from my portfolio of giclee fine-art prints.
This mixed portfolio shows abstracts, abstractions, florals, landscapes, cityscapes, harbours, cats, kitchens, still life, and anything else.
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.
