About This Image:
This London architectural blueprint artwork was inspired by one of my visits to Westminster Abbey several years ago. This was one of my first exposures to soaring medieval Gothic architecture. There’s just something amazing about these old structures. It’s my understanding the looming towers were meant to lift the eyes towards the heavens and they certainly succeed at that. I wanted to do something that would emphasize the lines of Westminster Abbey and that was when it hit me to try creating stylized blueprint art using my photos of the front facade of the old abbey church. Once the wheels were set in motion, I decided this London architectural blueprint art piece would honor the history of the church. Although blueprints as such didn’t exist then, this is how I envisioned they would have looked down to the seal of Henry III who was the King who ordered the rebuilding of the Abbey in the basic style that has come down to us today.
In the 13th century, King Henry III tore down the old abbey and set about building a new abbey in the Gothic style that was then popular on the European continent. Although this is purely a work of the imagination, in addition to the seal, we see his name and the church’s name in the Latin of the period. I felt these extra details really gave this the sense that these could have been the very plans that Henry III reviewed as the new building rose from the rubble of the old. This London architectural blueprint art honors the history of London as well as Westminster Abbey itself.
Those medieval Gothic churches were long works in progress. If there are surviving 13th century plans for the church, they might bear only a resemblance to the Westminster Abbey of the 21st century. As is common, the church we see today represents centuries of modifications, adaptations, and changing tastes. In fact, parts of the original designs were not completed until the 18th century when the western towers were finally built. That just illustrates what a long game medieval architecture was, particularly when building on the scale of Westminster Abbey.
Westminster Abbe holds a special place in English history as the site for generations of Royal coronations, weddings, and funerals. Every coronation since William The Conqueror has taken place there and many medieval monarchs are buried there. Whether you’ve visited the Abbey or seen it on TV, you’ve likely seen the magic of that old church. Ultimately its place in history and at the heart of English identity was what inspired this artwork.
Whether you’ve visited Westminster Abbey or not, I’d love to hear your thoughts about this print. Are you looking for a gift for someone who loves old architecture? Or is this a memento for yourself? Prints are available in a range of sizes and formats from small memento sized prints to large wall art. If you have any questions or comments about prints or otherwise, please send me your message.

It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!

Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.

Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.

I got my print today, thank-you so much.

It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
