Prague At Dusk
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
ORIGINAL SOLD. AVAILABLE AS GICLEE PRINTS FROM FAA OR ARTIST.
Prague is one of my favourite European cities and I was fortunate enough to visit on business a few years ago. This scene is based on a series of photographs taken from Charles Bridge. I have used a considerable amount of artistic licence, changing the sky, adding flood lighting to the main buildings and modifying the perspective to add interest. As with many of my paintings, I have also made extensive use of golden ratios, notably with the position of the sun, the various roof lines and key buildings.
In the background is Prague Castle with St. Vitus Cathedral positioned in front of the setting sun. Looking west along the bridge are the Lesser Town Towers and the magnificent St. Nicholas Cathedral.
My favourite dog, Oscar, makes another appearance, here seen crossing the bridge in front of Saints Norbert of Xanten, Wenceslas and Sigismund.
This painting took longer to complete than any other to date but I am pleased with the final result.
