Opened on December 31st 1999, the Milennium Wheel, or London Eye as it’s more commonly known, has become the focal point of London’s annual New Year’s Eve celebrations and fireworks spectacular, centred around Big Ben at the Houses of Parliament and the South Bank of the River Thames. It was originally built as a temporary structure, to usher in the new century, but it’s commercial success as a tourist attraction, offering incredible views of the city, has seen it made a permanent fixture. Europe’s tallest Ferris wheel, the structure is 443 feet (135 m) tall with a diameter of 394 feet (120 m). This graphic representation of the London Eye provides doubles the impact, depicting as it does the wheel’s elegant reflection in the waters of the Thames.

TS Design Ideas…
Which size? For wow factor and individual impact, opt for the larger format of an A1 print measuring 840 x 594mm. If you want to include this drawing as part of a smart gallery wall or eclectic grouping of artwork and photography – go for the smaller A2 version which measures 594 x 420mm.
Need framing advice? We’d suggest a slim, white frame with subtly visible woodgrain and a white card mount, if you wish the frame to disappear – say, against a white wall – and the print to stand out. Equally as effective is the same style of frame but in black, also teamed with a white card mount, to outline the drawing and act like bold, precise punctuation! The third option would be to go for a softer, warmer effect with a natural or stained wooden mount. All three will work beautifully, depending on backdrop, and the look you want to achieve.
