Corporate commission - London scenes

This month I'm working with artist Tina Mammoser on a collaboration - to create 17 paintings for a London accountancy firm's offices. They asked me to create a whole series of paintings based on London landmarks but without the clichés - drawing based with lots of light.

I put my storyboarding research experience to work and proposed a selection of pieces, with each room having a theme. The Coliseum theatre for a small meeting room, and big bold structures for the large meeting room. Guests will arrive to Trafalgar Square inspiration. The hallway will be a line of bridge details. And the staff stuck in the back room will have British Museum columns and bit of blue sky peaking through the ceiling design.

Tina has created her usual soft ethereal backgrounds for me to paint and draw over. (Tina is blogging her take on the project.) Here's a start with painted lines to create the beginnings of the building shadows.
