This painting is based on a photo that I took from the Jubilee footbridge looking toward Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. I did dramatize the light effect on this scene of the Thames River in the heart of central London to create what I hope is a more effective and focused view. In this piece the wall of the embankment leads us toward the perpendicular gothic creation by Charles Barry assisted by Augustus Pugin. As I love architecture, Pugin is a favourite of mine. Pugin’s work became most fashionable and so is evident in many of the great country houses and some of the country churches.
