London’s looking good

Painting in The Mall a day before the Royal Wedding, London is looking great with so many flags flying and the sun shining. Some people were camping out to get a view on the big day.

A message of congratulations on the window at W H Patterson in Mayfair.

Regent Street flags, 10x12in.Β  The smaller of two views I painted while standing on a traffic island in the middle of the road.

I had been painting the Union Flags and noticed this red white and blue pattern had appeared in my dipper – almost a French tricolour.

    Rene – it would also be the French flag if the wind was blowing the other way πŸ˜‰

    Well done for recording the event in oil, and in particular for making it appear a touch sunnier than I remember it being. Very good pic.

    Hi Ian, the wedding day was cloudy but I painted the picture on The Mall the day before, so I can’t take credit for artistic licence! By the time I finished painting it had clouded over, as you can see in the photo. The light rarely stays the same for long here but we have been very lucky with the weather for the last few weeks πŸ™‚
