'Westminster Through The Eye' by Harry Price

“It is surprising how quickly the reflections of light on the curved surfaces of the pod change as the The London Eye slowly revolves. The images are in a state of flux, the focal points, patterns of buildings and shadow configurations are constantly changing to give structure to the surface of the painting. Pockets of mist drift across giving added spatial atmosphere and pearlescence with watercolour adapting easily to capture these qualities. The patterns of reflections the sparkle and spatial sensations of the scene are brought about by using masking fluid and tape, sponging out and a variety of other techniques.” – Harry Price
