Silver morning light from Wandsworth Bridge, 6" x 8", Oil on gessoed card, 2010

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!

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!

Your painting has so much life and vitality. I love this piece. The photo reference is quite gray.
