Building The Tyne Bridge II – Fine Art Print by William Fawkes

The Tyne Bridge has become an iconic symbol of life here in the North East of England, straddling the city of Newcastle and town of Gateshead.

From artist William Fawkes:

Following another drawing I did of the same bridge in 2016, this is an alternative perspective of the Tyne Bridge in Newcastle, much closer to it’s completion in early 1928. This time as the viewpoint is much lower down along the quayside, there are boats anchored up below and a clearer overall view of how the bridge’s arching frame will soon join together.

I deliberately left all the pencil smudges in this time, as it helped to enhance the greyness often seen on a cloudy wet day along Tyneside, and also from the boats burning fuels. There are no figures walking along the tightropes high above today, but there are some shadowed figures down on the left-hand walk-way.
