My favourite part of Bristol – when I see the colourful terraces of Totterdown I know I am nearly home! The green spire Holy Nativity is a landmark that can be seen from all around Bristol. Park Street, in the middle of this panorama, is a challenge to walk up, but one that pales into insignificance in comparison to Vale Street (hiding just to the left behind Upper Street), the steepest residential street in the UK. Add a fabulous Art Trail every year, and who couldn’t love Totterdown?
I start each of my large cityscapes by taking numerous photos, before heading to my studio to get drawing. When the pencil drawing is finished, I draw it again in pen, then scan the pen version into the computer and spend a ridiculous amount of time digitally adding the colour. The resulting high resolution digital image is printed on a large format printer as a high quality Giclée Print. My panoramas come in two sizes, 100 x 30cm (edition of 100), and 70 x 21cm (edition of 125). Each is numbered, signed, and embossed with my stamp in the corner.
My prints are a modern take on the city view. They have proved very popular as birthday and wedding gifts, are often bought for colleagues, and for those poor souls who are leaving Bristol and want to take a part of it with them. Of course the best gift is the one you buy for yourself, so if you would like one of my prints to come and live on your wall, please select the size you would like from the list below, then click on the button to be taken to PayPal.
Prints will be delivered in a sturdy cardboard tube. UK postage is free, for elsewhere in the World, please email me before you place an order (email@example.com).
Due to Covid 19 I am only visiting the post office once a week so please allow a little extra time for delivery. Thank you.
