Fog Engulfs The Paragon 2013, oil on board 20.3 x 25.4 cm 8 x 10 ins Setting off on a December morning run, I found myself in a real Blackheath pea-souper. Such conditions are rare so I cut the run short and rushed out with my easel to a spot looking onto The Paragon. I was hooked by the chimney stacks peering out of the fog but they soon disappeared completely and I had to stand around reassuring myself that they’d return. Eventually they did, and the sun just about managed to bring out some sheen on a roof tile and the odd car.†5
