Under Hungerford 2015, oil on board 40.6 x 30.5 cm 16 x 12 ins This was a tough one because, even on calm days, the bridge acts like a wind tunnel, and after a while, the constant cooling flow of air on my eyes started to affect my vision. Worse still, buskers were singing the same songs over and over, cheerfully murdering some of my favourites (except the Simon & Garfunkel guy, he’s quite good). Nevertheless I enjoyed it, especially painting the water and the elevated walkway—it’s not often I get to put people in the sky.
