“Summer Shower on The Strand 3” is a figurative acrylic painting on board. The board is 102 x 41 x 0.9 cm (40 x 16 x 3/8 inches)
This is one of a series of paintings exploring the challenge of depicting the expansiveness of trafalgar Square, Central London’s largest open urban space, the verticality of the landmark Nelson’s Column, and the activity at street level .
The work contrasts the permanence of the architecture with the movement of people, and reflects the soft golden light of the sky in the wet pavements to express the scale of the Square. The horizontal composition expresses the scale of the Square cutting off the full height of Nelson’s Column, but showing enough of the monument for it to be recognisable.
The work is painted in acrylics with a gloss uv varnish, on 9mm MDF board with a gesso primer.
The image continues around the sides of the board, and would work well in a simple tray frame. The artwork is signed and comes with a signed and dated Certificate of Authenticity.
