With her characteristic attention to the subtle nuances of light on a landscape, Daisy Sims-Hilditch has captured this view of the River Thames in London (part of a series of two prints) at dusk. The soft colours are wonderfully calming, while the dappled light on the water and the hazy silhouettes of bridges, buildings and the embankment capture the spirit of the city perfectly.

Meet the artist

Daisy Sims-Hilditch is a London-based artist who creates landscapes, portraits and the occasional still-life in a naturalistic, impressionist style, often en plein air. Capturing the changing light is what she’s most known for expressing so well.

En plein air: explained

When an artist is painting en plein air, it means that they’re completing the entire piece from start to finish outdoors in the landscape that they’re painting. It’s a way of creating very natural, of-the-moment pieces.

In the frame

The frame on this piece is a pared-back timber design with a black-painted border and a champagne-gilded inside edge that highlights the frame’s depth. We felt the simplicity allowed the painting itself to shine, while the combination of black and gilding (neither yellow gold nor grey silver) reflected the shadowy buildings and the play of light on the water. The mount is a plain, soft-white card.

A styling tip or two

As there are two of these prints, you can definitely hang them together in a pair. The frames also match those on Daisy’s St Mawes and Veneto prints, which you’ll find in our collection too, so you could choose from these as well to mix in with other styles (the Sketch series would work especially well) as part of a gallery wall.
