Morning on Merrill Street // ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING
Original oil painting on canvas, framed in a dark wood floating frame, sized 70 x 50cm (framed size 85 x 65cm)
Taken from Joe Simpson's series 'Across America'. In the summer of 2012 Joe spent a month travelling across America, documenting the journey by making drawings, paintings and taking photographs along the way. Travelling on the famous train line the Chicago Zephyr, Joe started the trip in New York and moved across country to San Francisco, making notable stops in Maine, Chicago, Denver and Salt Lake City. A selection of the sketches that were created on the trip can be seen below, as well as the final oil paintings which were developed from the studies when he returned home to his London studio.
