This painting from Hungerford Bridge was completed on the 4th October. Size 12″ x 10″ After our accidental meeting on Hungerford Bridge last Thursday, Andrew Hird and I met up on Sunday to tackle a view looking from Hungerford Bridge looking towards Waterloo Bridge.

I was painting this when a photographer came up to me and asked me if there was some sort of painting convention going on that day as he had seen others working near Trafalgar Square. I said maybe but it’s just little on me on the bridge today. Five minutes past and six painters arrived…Details
This painting from Albert Bridge is 12″ x 14″ I love the way that the tie posts over this view of Cadogan pier offer the perfect opportunity for enhancing linear perspective and it helped create a sense of space in this picture.

Hot Summer’s Day at Hampstead Pond
This 12″x10″ painting was executed on a perfect summer’s day, (one of the very few we had in 2015)!
It was one of several I did during the course of the day and this one seemed to have a sparkle about it that I wanted to capture.

Momentary changes in the light conditions are very noticeable on the water as is tidal movement. I have not worked out yet why water levels can vary so substantially from one…Details
