I've been enjoying working with mixed media recently, particularly using newspaper as a base to draw and paint over.
Collage gives a lot of possibilities for conveying different textures; the brutalist architecture of the National Theatre with its subtle gradients of tone and line seemed like a good match for this approach.
The picture took around 5 sittings to complete - the longest part being arranging the underlying newspaper.
The picture is available as a print from my shop here.
