My painting "Angel Of The North" is finished! Here it is! Oil on canvas 16" x 20". I loved putting those rays of sunlight in today using a lovely soft glaze!
For those who don't know any of the background of the Angel here are a few interesting facts!
The Angel of the North is a contemporary sculpture, designed by Antony Gormley, which is located in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, England.
It is a steel sculpture of an angel, 20 metres (66 ft) tall, with wings measuring 54 metres (177 ft) across. The wings do not stand straight sideways, but are angled 3.5 degrees forward. This is to create "a sense of embrace".
The significance of the angel was firstly, to signify that beneath the site of its construction, coal miners worked for two centuries. Second, to grasp the transition from an industrial to information age, and thirdly, to serve as a focus for our evolving hopes and fears.
Angel Of The North will be available to buy as soon as the paint is dry!
