EAST VILLAGE

‘East Village’ 2012 oil on canvas, 105 x125 cms

We had a tour of the Olympic Athlete’s village as part of a project, where five artists are being commissioned to create artworks that will be part of a marketing scheme to offer the ‘East Village’ homes to local people after the games in 2013.

Here is a link to a virtual fly through of the village.

Below are images of the village and various stages of the making of the painting all of these photos are by me, however, a big thanks to Mike Odwyer who took us on the tour and supplied us with some  fantastic photography which I also used as a resource to make the painting: http://www.mikeodwyer.co.uk/homepage.htm
