About "Westminster Walk"

In contrast to other countries I visit, painting in the UK offers so many opportunities to paint during and after rainfall. I have come to love this quirk of British weather, as the rain-coated streets can give an almost mirrored surface, reflecting beautiful light and colour. In this piece, the colours of the city and sky were so vividly echoed on the road. I used metallic gold paint for Big Ben, to emulate the glisten of its limestone brickwork as sunlight hits. I kept brushwork fluid to reflect a sense of the wet weather, and finished the painting with quick penned lines to add loose detail and form.
