painting of big benThis was painted plein air in central London several weeks ago. It's 10"x10", oil on board, and is available for purchase in the online store for £60 (Paypal) includnig postage.

A video shot on location at the time is here.

Having walked down Whitehall, dodging the showers, I arrived in Parliament Square to see Big Ben silhouetted in reverse by the afternoon sun with heavy rain clouds behind it. Surpringingly I found a quiet spot to paint from even though there were literally thousands of people milling around.
