Thames River traffic provides an active counterpoint to the massive buildings of the London skyline festooned with spidery cranes. I find this active sort of scene exciting to paint and I try to show that exhilaration in the handling of the paint.
This view is from Waterloo Bridge. My rather rough handling is intended to take out the detail and show the major players in this exciting scene. Once again working on a rough ground, I want a robust masculinity to be obvious.
