Czech born artist Alena Carvalho is known for her iconic atmospheric european city scene paintings.
Taking inspiration from distinctive city features and her own photography.
"Through the lens I love capturing the fleeting compositions of a scene and its atmosphere as it changes with the time of year and day. It's beautiful watching the rain spilling pools of light and colour onto the pavements. I am compelled to paint the long shadows printed on the ground by the afternoon sun or the morning fog as it softens the edges and desaturates colours."
