This new work of art was created over 4 sessions, each time adding layers and taking the art in new directions until it felt complete. I hope your find peace in this work of art. I love London and am proud to live in this amazing city.

How I paint is explained in this video, I talk about my painting techniques and attitude to creativity. If you love painting, just start playing with the colours and see what happens. Forget the end result and enjoy the process. When you are in this frame of mind it is amazing what ideas can flow. This oil on canvas was inspired by someone who loves wildlife who came to mind as I worked and the colours reminded me of Alaska: some of the proceeds went to WWF to sponsor polar bears. Bought by an interiors fit out expert for his own home on the first day of Grand Designs Excel London along with a sister painting Hippo Belly Sky.

Cityscape of New York painted in oil on canvas by Sara Sherwood

“In His Light” Abstract cityscape by Sara Sherwood

This cityscape skyline painting of New York was inspired by listening to psalm 95 song by Ian White. The music made me feel so happy and made me want to dance as I painted “In His Light”. Also inspired by the lights and drama of New York, I wanted to express that vibrancy in oil on canvas in a semi abstract style to create a ‘feel good’ work of art. I have happy memories of New York and it is a beautiful city to paint.

I am also creating more paintings of London, New York, Venice, Rome and Paris and these abstract architectural paintings can be seen at Leadenhall market in the city of London every Wednesday. I welcome commissions and new challenges which take me in new creative directions and have painted one off works of art for many corporate office art collections. I sometimes take part in art fairs in London so please check my website or the galleries in London that I am part of: Skylark Galleries. I am also part of New Art Gallery in Barlylands Craft Village, Essex.

I am also considering taking part in art on the railings in Bayswater Road art market depending on my workload and weather!
