Guys and Dolls

Guys and Dolls

Size: 6" x 6"
Medium: Acrylic
Surface: Wood Panel
Style: Realism / Photorealism
Artist: Thaneeya McArdle

This meticulously detailed miniature painting depicts the exterior of Piccadilly Theatre in London last summer, after the matinee for Guys and Dolls let out. It was a great show, starring the names written across the marquee:

Ewan McGregor, Jane Krakowski, Douglas Hodge, and Jenna Russell

I was fascinated by all the little details in this snapshot, from the architecture to the individual people milling about in the street. I may paint a larger version of this scene someday.

This cityscape painting is so incredibly detailed for such a small size. I've included a photo below of the painting being held in my hand, to provide a sense of scale.

This painting is available for purchase here.
