This etching explores the striking glazing structure of the turbine hall at Fawley Power Station. Its towering glass cornices zig-zag across its north-east and south-west facing facades and return to ground level at its north-west end. I have used acrylic spray paint to create a fine aquatint for darker areas of the print and a wax resist for the glazed areas to create lighter areas to simulate the reflected sky on the glazing.
Fawley Power Station has been a significant feature of the Solent landscape for nearly 60 years. To celebrate its fine brutalist architecture I have created a series of prints taking different views and using different printing techniques. This print is the third in the series.
