Here's a treat for all London-livers - or lovers. Or both.

A trio of original watercolour paintings on 100% cotton paper, by Lena Stogneva - St Pancras, Museum Street and Bank Station.

Lena's degree in Architecture honed her perspective and geometry skills, especially when drawing street views, urban scenes or city skylines - her favourite subjects. Over the years, she has experimented with many different drawing materials. In the last five years, she has discovered watercolour and that's now her preferred media.

She specialises in urban landscapes and focuses on the play of light and shadow to convey the moods and emotions of the city. She also enjoys toying with angles of view and, particularly, looking down, sometimes from vertiginous viewpoints.

 

We love the movement and energy in her drawings, the seemingly effortless ability to capture complex perspectives and structures and the clever depiction of light and shadow across roof lines, streets and buildings. 

  • ABOUT LENA STOGNEVA

    Now living with her family - and working as a professional artist - in Hertfordshire, Lena grew up in the Soviet Union/Russia. There she went to drawing school after her normal school day ended.

     

    She also spent a lot of her childhood with her grandmother, who introduced her to the world of art and was - and still is - her biggest inspiration.
     

    Later, a degree in Architecture, at Saratov Technical University,  developed her perspective and geometry skills, especially when drawing street views, panoramic urban scenes or city skylines.

     

    Over the years, Lena has experimented with many different drawing materials, doing quick pen sketches on holiday and in her spare time. In the last five years, she has discovered watercolour and that has now became her preferred media, allowing full rein to her sketch technique.

     

    Lena regards her art as visual storytelling, building a bridge between contemporary art and illustration: “I love to draw city scenes and paint the ordinary life I see around me every day. Anything that touches me, that I have really special feelings for, from a vast field of poppies to a beautiful sunset.

    “I like to regard my pictures as my messengers and I’m happy if others feel that emotion when they look at them too.”
