New Routemasters, Threadneedle 2015, oil on board 25.4 x 50.8 cm 10 x 20 ins A lot of factors can come into play when deciding where to set up your easel. Lamp posts and other street furniture are useful in crowded areas because they provide an unpopulated wake in the flow of bodies. In this case I was hooked by the Threadneedle Street windows in the early evening sun but I was forced to set up at a point that would be in the shadows soonest because we were bang in the middle of a heatwave and any direct sunlight was just too unbearable.†22
