Realistic Urban Landscape Paintings by Nathan Walsh

British painter Nathan Walsh created a collection of incredibly life-like paintings of Chicago and New York.

"I deal exclusively with the urban landscape and aim to present a painted world which in some ways resembles the world we live in. I am fascinated by the city, it's visual complexity and constant state of flux. The act of painting is an attempt fix this information and give vision to our experience of living within it."

"The work aims to create credible and convincing space which whilst making reference to our world displays it's own distinct logic."

Walsh relies on elaborate pencil drawings reminiscent of architectural blueprints that are drawn on-site.

"Working with a box of pencils and an eraser I will start by establishing an horizon line on which I will place vanishing points to construct simple linear shapes which become subdivided into more complex arrangements."

"By using simple mathematical ratios I can begin to describe concrete form within my picture plane. Over a period of time I will draw and redraw buildings, manipulating their height, width or nature in relation to other pictorial elements."
