‘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.

Robert Barlow, who has a photographic eye for the urban landscape, travels the length and breadth of the country to photograph his subjects, through the media of digital photography, capturing the ever changing skylines through out recent modern times, which he translates into oil paintings of rich, colouful and virile compositions. Born in 1973, the Tamworth based artist attained a B.A Hons art and design degree at Bradford College in 1996, where he specialised in painting, and later obtained a Master of Arts degree in Print Making, in 1998. His works are typically colourful and vibrant, with rustic colours and textures set against turquoises and blues, and begin their process with pale graduated background washes, overlaid with pastel toned block colours, applied by large household brushes. Details are overlaid and textured with palette knives, and various other tools including rollers and smaller brushes. His work depicts scenes of old and new, of changing and regenerating urban skylines and water fronts, new structures erected by cranes and old industrial landscapes, slowly dissapearing , phase by phase. Scenes amongst the concrete jungle, beneath concrete flyovers, streets that have seen better days and inner cities metamophosing into the glass and steel icons of today.
