End of Day, The Strand 2015, pastel on paper 30 x 40 cm 11.8 x 15.7 ins There isn’t much time to capture the dusk or the last few moments of sunlight, even in June when that time of day lingers. I did several late evening pieces over the summer of 2015, often choosing to use pastels because they tend to be that little bit quicker. I love working as fast as I can, trying to get everything done before the artificial lights become completely dominant.†St Martin-in-the-Fields from Costa 2015, oil on board 16 x 22 cm 6.3 x 8.7 ins 28
