More collage and more rainy London! I was initially attracted to the green reflections from the traffic lights on the wet surface of the pavement. Then I noticed that the lights in the buildings were glowing yellow (amber?) as dusk was approaching. Red brake lights completed the picture. I had my own traffic light combo – no problems choosing a title for this painting!
I had fun using collage with mixed media for this view of St. Paul’s cathedral and the Millennium Bridge from the Thames. I tend not to use collage often for rural scenes but it somehow seems quite appropriate for urban ones. Much of the original collage has been covered by acrylic inks and/or acrylic paint and I certainly enjoyed the mark-making – and of course the splatters!
