From the Shadows; Wretched Hive of Scum & Villainy ... by Mark Braithwaite
The Houses of Parliament, Westminster, London
Painted in mixed media on watercolour on paper.
Mark got some new Opal paints at Christmas, and had some fun combining two of his favourite things - film and cityscape. The Death Star hovering over The Houses of Parliament - either a bad dream or the ultimate in fan art!
The Opal paints have been used on the Death Star, looming in the sky overhead. The unusual paint gives an iridescent effect, changing tone from different angles.
Following on from the success of his 'Zombie Apocalypse' series, Gallery Resident Artist Mark Braithwaite has expanded the range to create the 'From the Shadows' collection, of other supernatural beings and mystical happenings.
Mark tells us "This is the latest in my fun series of ghostly illustrations, 'From the Shadows' painted in watercolour and mixed media. In the sky I have used Schminke Horadam Supergranulation watercolours which made the unusual skies happen!"
The glass size of the frame is 40x40cm, and image size 25x25cm; the painting has been mounted in a white mount with a black core, and framed in a wide distressed black frame.
Prints are also available direct from the artist.
