The space created by Brunel's magnificent wrought iron arches at Paddington Station is vast. So it's only fitting that Rebecca has used her largest wood engraving to date to pay tribute to this incredible feat of architecture.
The viewpoint is a ramp leading down to platforms 8 and 9, via which vehicles used to be able to drive right down to the trains. This shadowy, narrow route serves as a striking contrast to the bright, broad space created by the roof - which dwarfs the passengers and even the trains.
