The Water Tower Berkhamsted Original Painting
This early painting of mine (2014) shows minimalist tendancies!
The 1930s water tower in Shootersway was built to provide water pressure to the newly developed SW of Berkhamsted such as the Foundling Hospital at Ashlyns.
The architect was JR Hadfield (who also designed the Civic Centre), using “cunning architectural devices" – windows, false projecting beams and buttresses, a widow’s walk and a red-tiled conical roof topped by a weather-vane – completing the impression of part of a chateau’s fortifications. As a child I used to believe Rupert Bear lived here (sometimes I still think that!).
I now offer the original artwork for sale direct from my studio in Tring, Herts. The originals are hand-painted painted using water-based Winsor & Newton professional gouache paint on Arboreta E.S. white drawing cartridge paper 160g/m2
This painting 27.5cm x 19cm is offered mounted but unframed. Signed and titled in pencil by me.
