Along the Thames


Along the Thames.jpg

I’ve always spent most of my time in London on the north side of the Thames.  That is where most of the famous tourist sites are.  The last time I was there, I walked across the bridge to the south side and headed west.  It was a lazy Sunday afternoon, and crowds of the locals liesurely strolled along the path.  It was very pleasant.  Street vendors and mimes entertained everyone.  The entrance to the Millenial Eye, London’s famous ferris wheel, is on that side too.  I was so impressed  with the enjoyable low key atmosphere and the great view of the Houses of Parliament across the river that I had to try and paint it.  I hope you can feel the warmth and relaxed atmosphere.

That is a beautiful painting! It reminds me of those pretty paintings from the Impressionistic Era.

How well I remember when we visited London in 1996 and walked along the Thames and across the river. Such a beautiful rendition. I love London!
