Limited edition print of a painting of Statue of James Henry Greathead, in The City of London


The original painting of a view of the Statue of James Henry Greathead, in The City of London is 15.5cm x 15.5cm and is framed

One day in early August, I visited an exhibition or two and while between galleries the train I was riding came to a halt at Bank underground station. The driver announced that there was some delay or other and the train will be terminated.

Rather than wait for another train I decided to go ‘up top’ and get a bus or maybe walk. On exiting the underground I spotted this statue on Cornhill. I had no idea who it was and by the look of him it could have been Indiana Jones. I really liked the silhouette the statue created and how the light played on each side of Cornhill. Worth a painting, certainly. I produced the initial drawing in pencil but soon realised that in my enthusiasm, I had bitten off more than I could chew.

The statue itself was pretty simple, however, the background was incredibly complex leaving me scratching away for ages, marking it in.
I sometimes I wish I was one of those artists that can just happily mark in whole areas of tone and just leave it at that. Having said that, ultimately, I do really enjoy working the way I do.

What is a Giclee Print?

Giclee is a very high quality print process used by galleries and artists for exclusive limited editions. This Giclee process uses 12 true pigment artist colours (ultra marine, ochre etc) rather than the standard four dye colours in normal printing, so Giclee delivers greater depth in colour, tonal values and no yellowing over time.
