About this work of Art
‘Shard construction By the Thames’ (View taken from Hanseatic Walk) is an original urban landscape oil painting by Robert Barlow, on 3cm deep unframed box canvas.
This city scape painting depicts the ‘Shard’ in its final stages of construction. In this scene long shadows and orange hues are cast across a paved foreground, by a low setting sun, illuminating the ‘Shard’ and its construction cranes and buildings around it, set against a clear sky receding into a wintery haze.
The painting entails a contrast of light and shadow and complimentary colours of rusty oxides set against turquoises and coeruleum blues.
The artists paintings are taken from his own photographic compositions, taken onsite.
