It is a spectacular building, the recently opened The Shard in London Southwark. With 310m it is one of the talles buildings in europe and definitely a new icon for the London skyline. Although there were some middle earth jokes running through the web, as some see some similarities with Saurons Tower in Mordor – it will be another tourist magnet for London and a photo must for any photo addict.
But it is also a must for painting it. There are many interesting views and lighting conditions. Especially in combination with the famous London Tower Bridge. But have a look now on our first painting of the Tower Bridge with The Shard at Dusk.
