London Park with Big Ben

Painting Description

This sketch which hangs in my home depicts a view just down the River Thames from the Parliament Buildings in London, England. Directly across the river, the London Eye, that huge Ferris wheel, rotates with its cargo of tourists. When I painted this piece in 1996, that feature was not yet built. I am attracted by the tranquility of parks that are set in large cities because they offer a peaceful pause amid the chaos. I find it difficult to strain out stimulation both audible and visual. I am assaulted by colours and contrasts so this almost vacant patch of green is a quiet room in a city that I love.
