On my frequent visits to London, especially during the colder months, I explore the shape of its changing form, the inconstant light from an equally fickle sky painting the subject like a stage set. Subjects include The Shard, Trafalgar Square and Bar Italia. I employed techniques learned from a painting demonstration and workshop the previous week: underpainting, thin layered washes, tonal contrast. The painting of the railway tracks is not of London, but the entrance to the Channel Tunnel at Calais. It is based on an image I saw on telly, modified somewhat but keeping the essence of its simple graphic form.
