Copenhagen

250.00

Copenhagen is Denmark’s capital, it sits the islands of Zealand and Amager. The Öresund Bridge links the city with Malmo in southern Sweden.
The city’s historic center, contains Frederiksstaden, an 18th-century rococo district, home to the royal family’s Amalienborg Palace.
Christiansborg Palace and the Renaissance-era Rosenborg Castle are two beautiful construction with a deep and rich history; they are surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens.
The painting features the beautiful city of Nyhavn, a 17th-century waterfront vista which has become an iconic scene for tourists who visit Denmark.
Stretching from Kongens Nytorv to the harbour front just south of the Royal Playhouse, it is instantly recognised by its brightly coloured 17th and early 18th century townhouses, bars, cafes, and restaurants.

I spent the majority of my time working in detail on the crowd scene in the middle of the painting, each of the figures was done with a very fine brush gradually building up the detail. Many hours were also spent on all of those windows, building up layer after layer of acrylic to try and get variation in the windows on each building.
