Zooming in

Canary Wharf is a new financial centre located in the East End of London.  It is a showcase of many modern architectural styles set in the old docklands environment. DLR trains approaching Canary Wharf are the only noisy elements in this silent, cold and rather unfriendly looking place.

I took the DLR to West India Quay station and got off right in front of the new futuristic looking world. High-rise offices with a long history are beautiful and frightening  at the same time.

Zooming In sketch     I spent a day by sketching the place with a pen and pencil. Later I translated the drawing into a painting (below).
