A few months ago Paul Kenton’s released 3 new Limited edition box canvas’s and we at Fineartblog.co.uk where blown away with them…


‘From Westminster Bridge’ by Paul Kenton
(Limited edition box canvas)

Due to the size and amount of hand finishing/ layering that goes into each limited editon, the arrival of these pieces into galleries was slow & these have ‘trickled’ into galleries over the last few months, as collectors count the days until their pre-order arrives.

‘From Westminster Bridge’ – was produced specifically as a follow up to ‘London Red’ which proved incredibly popular & due to high demand, some customers missed out on purchasing. The jpegs on a computer screen can never truly show the beauty and impressiveness of this piece & his wonderful use of (shades of) red in the sky and purple in the foreground. Purple is an unusual colour to be used in a modern cityscape & yet it works beautifully in this night-time piece of the Houses Of Parliament.

All the buildings are outlined with Pauls’ trade mark hand layered formula (in this case black) & to top of the masterpiece we have the classic London Red Bus caught in the moment.


‘City Reflections’ by Paul Kenton
(Limited edition box canvas)

This is Paul’s largest panoramic piece to date and a predominantly black and white, night time vision of the City of London The white buildings are also hand embelsished/outlined (in this case white) with Paul’s formula, which makes them stand out further against the background as though the picture was illuminated. Look closer and Paul’s trademark red cranes are also there!


‘Going Downtown’ by Paul Kenton
(Limited edition box canvas)

Displaying the hustle & bustle and vibrancy of one of the world’s greatest cities, with his use of bright colours, Paul has captured one of his favourite cities & although this is not the first time, there is something very fresh about the style used here. Yellow cabs buzzing around in the foreground with their distinctive banna yellow and a lush light blue used all over the painting gives this picture and almost effervescent feel to it!

let us know your thoughts…

thank you

  1. I aboslutely love the way this artists uses the vertical-the-horizontal overlay brush stroke to get the water effect on the surface of the road while still retaining the detail around it – I would love to see how it was done as to get this accuracy and detail with a water effect underneath takes quite soem expertise. I know, I have tried and still try with my work. (I am assuming that is the way he is achieving the watery effect, any advice would be welcomed)
