Take a Step Back

Watercolour painting

This artwork is a watercolour painting of the Great Hall in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in 6440 pixels. I have been drawn to the geometric shapes we see when looking at buildings since completing a project on this in 1982. Cubism is my favourite style of art and I paint from photos I have taken on my travels, developing the shapes within them either freehand or by using a pixelating app. Pixelation also gives the feeling that if you take a step back, things become clearer. I find this to be true in life as well as art!
