As part of his recent project involving typing scenes on location, James Cook visited Trinity Buoy Wharf recently to type the view from the Lighthouse. The drawing is part of a series of three London skyline scenes. The drawing took two weeks to complete and measures in at 100cm x 45cm (unframed). It is made from 5 pieces of paper bonded together into one single frame.
