my work

 

 

With a strong visual through line and a harmonious colour palette, the works displayed is made up entirely of landscapes and cityscapes that exclusively depict the artist’s native Los Angeles. Expanding on elements from real life, these works enhance the visual appeal of the city to create individually idealised vignettes.

my process

Each painting that Armstrong creates is the product of meticulous process. The artist embarks on various excursions to explore Los Angeles at dawn and dusk. Sometimes travelling no more than a few miles from his home, Armstrong camps out at different viewpoints to take hundreds of photographs of the same scene. At times, Armstrong creates drawings from these many photographs, using them as starting points for his canvas works. At others, he dives straight into painting, spending more time on underpainting to plan his compositions.
