the shard and tower bridge painted in oilsA break from London sketches. This is one of the oil pochade paintings I started looking towards the Pool of London and Tower Bridge from the Thames south bank in Bermondsey.

The big building on the left is called the Shard and as it nears completion, completely dominates the sky-line on the south bank near Waterloo Bridge - I think it's a big mistake.

A huge rainstorm was gathering and coming towards me - already the dome of St. Paul's is disappearing into the rain. The sky was almost green and I was about to get wet! Standing on the back balcony of "The Angel" pub, I had to rush into the bar and dry off. See the linked post.

10"x10" oil on board.
