I never intended to paint this scene I was on my way back from Battersea Reach, when I stopped to enjoy the glistering silver light dancing upon the Thames. It was just liberating. Then I though I would love to paint this but I have no clue how to go about it! So I just took pictures, then inside me, I just decided to give it a go and this is the result!
Silver morning light from Wandsworth Bridge, 6" x 8", Oil on gessoed card, 2010
It is a very moody atmospheric scene but I enjoyed the experience!
I had to hold the pochade with one hand, not so comfortable
All colours were applied thickly to capture the sensuality of the scene with paint!
