Cooperative Achivement

410 GBP / In stock.
The CIS Building used to be the first thing you could see of the City  Centre whenever you went into Manchester. The Cooperative society began in Rochdale and being close to Manchester it developed it's base here. The CIS tower was, for many years, the tallest building in Manchester and the tallest outside London in the UK. Now, overtaken by Beetham's Tower, it is still a local Landmark and worthy of note. The view was discovered in a walk around in the Northern Quarter.

Created in 2012, the picture is 50cm wide by 40 cm high, actual image 49cm x 39cm.

Cooperative Achievement is sold unframed, please contact me if you would like me to arrange framing for you.

Creation
The picture is painted on watercolour paper. I start off with a detailed pencil drawing. I then draw over the lines with masking fluid before painting it with a watercolour wash which gets covered with clingfilm. Once this is removed the picture is further developed using acrylic inks which are left to dry before the masking is removed to reveal the final picture.
