A sight seen from the top of The London Eye, in London, England. I primarily chose to depict it solely in violet to connote a royal mystique, as England is the monarch of Canada and has significant heritage for Canadians. Each of the four panels portrays a specific sight, and together unite to make the setting clear.
Again, my work incorporates loose, gestural brushstrokes in order to range from light and dark. This results in both connotative and denotative correlation between historical setting and contemporary depiction.
