Bonsoir Cannes, ipad commission

I was commissioned to draw these three sunsets from the client’s balcony in Cannes, France.  I used my iPad and enjoyed playing with colour!  They have been a delight to work on.

Millenium Bridge watercolour is growing!

Millenium Bridge joined 15 July 14 web

My watercolour from the middle of the Millennium Bridge is growing and growing.  It was inspiring to hear the radio programme ‘Playing the Skyline’ on Radio 4 with two musicians Courtney Pine and Anna Meredith composing music with this scene is mind.  A great idea which has spurred me on through a near miss on the bicycle commute, constant drizzle making a mess of my paper and one day, after a long cycle ride there, realising I had forgotten my paints!

Introducing my watercolour from Millennium Bridge, London.

I was walking over the Millennium Bridge from the Bankside Gallery one evening and I felt I must paint this scene.

The picture is already 1.5 metres long and growing every time I visit the bridge.  I envisage the scene ending at St Paul’s Cathedral on the left and Tate Modern on the right but let us see how it develops.  It is becoming a bit of a challenge!
