About London in Landscape Volume II

A companion volume to London in Landscape & a keepsake Guide to the City of London

London in Landscape (II) has been a passionate project for artist Karen Neale. Since October 2007 she has captured, in her own very distinctive style, many of the capital's most famous scenes, from St Pancras Station to the Barbican, from the Thames Barrier to Parliament Square. Featuring full colour sketches of London's most memorable scenes - such as the imposing British Library, the restored St Pancras Station, rare views from unusual vantage points and familiar scenes of some of the capital's timeless buildings - this is a beautiful gift book which has captured visual memories which many will appreciate.

Karen Neale

Karen Neale qualified as an architect, and is now a full-time working artist. In 2001 she was awarded a prestigious Churchill fellowship, which allowed her to travel from London to Nepal, through Europe, Iran, Uzbekistan and India, sketching her journey. In 2004 she was appointed artist-in-residence at the Athenaeum club in London. In the following year she had a similar appointment at Lord's cricket ground, during which time she sketched a number of scenes for Stephen Fay's book Tom Graveney At Lord's (Methuen, 2005).

 


Reviews
 

 

'Neale's vibrant collection of watercolours and sketches capture the essence of the London scenes she's chosen. She adds her own idiosyncratic comments around the edge of each picture. Sometimes ... the text is incorporated as part of the vista. These touches add further life to her busy representations of some of the capital's most interesting spots, both touristy and a little more recherche'

What's On In London

 

 

'Her passion for buildings... the canny choices of location and... unsual scribblings around the edges of each painting turn[s] this collection into something... substantial'

Good Book Guide

 

 

'The distinctive style of the author, accompanied by her obvious enthusiasm for London's sights makes London in Landscape a delightful little book that provokes the reader to discover fresh attractions, and to re-consider familiar ones'
