Explored: Vancouver Skyline

Posted on 12th April 2013 in explored

When I was traveling through Europe I was working on a lot of sketches, mostly due to the fact that carrying three small sketch books was a lot easier than buying/selling canvases at every destination I went to. I also sketch a lot.

I was feeling/still am feeling they’re very architecturally aligned, so I’ve been working on a way to unite these sketches with a painting. After posting Hunter’s Game, I had an inquiry from an acquaintance about possibly doing a commission piece of the Vancouver skyline, and this instantly sparked many creative juices and connected the two dots I’ve been trying to find a way to connect for a while.

Vancouver Skyline is a triptych, a three-piece meant to be displayed together, traditionally found in altar pieces with hinges and the lot. These don’t have hinges, and no religious significance, but here they are none-the-less.

Each canvas is 122 x 91.5 cm ( 4 x 3 ft).
