Thank you so much for your prompt response. We worked in the City of London and on the Thames (my husband was a Tug captain) for most of our working lives and you are quite right the skyline has changed – but your paintings of the river and the city under a “moody” sky is still a typical scene enjoyed by so many Londeners every day of their working lives as they cross Waterloo Bridge.Dear Alan

Your painting is in our Sitting Room above the fireplace and gives us daily pleasure- thank you so much!

Best wishes and kind regards,  Mr & Mrs P – London

Thames Sunrise, Watercolour Prints of London | London Limited Edition Prints – Alan Reed

This painting of the Thames showing the city of London skyline is the fruit of such studies. Over the years I have spent considerable time studying sunrises and the way light affects cityscapes.

The linear form and structure of the skyline, contrasts against the fluid, loose washes of the sky and water. Also, I wanted the painting to be full of light. Not just from the sun breaking through the low lying clouds, but also the last remnants of the artificial light being produced by the city itself before being switched off to be taken over by the full light of day.

Watercolour

This giclee limited edition prints of London has been faithfully reproduced from the original watercolour. I painted the Thames Sunrise on Fabriano Esportazione, which a very expensive hand made paper from Italy. The heavy texture of the paper is a delight to paint on. If you drag a large brush full of watercolour pigment over the surface, it creates some wonderful effects. At the edges of some of the cloud shapes, you can see how the paint catches the texture. You can see how this effect has been repeated in the light being reflected in the water. I have contrasted these loose, fluid techniques with the tighter, more controlled painting of the architecture.
