St. Paul's Cathedral (2019)
I have started to paint more architectural pieces and so began looking at buildings in London. I painted this from photographs that I took whilst wandering around the city. The colour inspiration came from a different set of pictures that I took whilst in the Tate Modern looking back across the Thames to St Paul's on a Winter afternoon.
I used acrylic paint on canvas and finished with a gloss varnish. The painting is signed on the back. The edges of the canvas are painted black and two d-rings are attached with screws to the wooden frame of the canvas on the back of the painting, a length of cord is included too so that it is ready to hang.
Dawn is a still life painter living in London, mainly using acrylic. Her work investigates traditional still life subject matter often re-painting the same objects in order to learn how to visually describe them. She has an ongoing series of citrus fruits, wine bottles and glasses, as well as taking inspiration from travelling.
During her University days she studied Fashion and Textile design, working with textiles gave her an understanding of colour and shape that she carries through to her painting work today. Her work can be found in private collections internationally and she regularly takes part in exhibitions across the UK.
