I wanted to make the most of being in London especially overnight. I persuaded my husband to get up at 5am (after the concert the night before!) and we heaved our equipment through London to the Tower Bridge view. It was a gorgeous morning, calm with great light shining onto the bridge.

I used a different board to the day before, with a lot more texture so the paint doesn’t slide so easily on it, the finished result suits the subject matter.
I put in all the dark tones first behind the bridge, without those it wouldnt show the light tones of the bridge. I kept the colours quite limited to blue, brown & ochre which gives a harmony and quiet feel.
I’m happy with this painting worth getting up for and traipsing through London!
