St Pauls from....

I recently came across a photo of this painting showing an eerie St Pauls, which I completed in the 1960's. I recall painting the view from somewhere around the Queenhithe stairs. The area has changed so dramatically now, can anyone identify the building that looks like a church to the left in the foreground?


Keen eyed Richard Dodson nailed it when he sent a link to this site; https://alondoninheritance.com/london-churches/the-lost-wharfs-of-upper-thames-street-and-st-benets-welsh-church/. Scroll down and you will see almost the exact same view and the author having similar difficulty until with patience he works out how the street pattern has changed!

Greenwich Park

In the sunshine thoughts turn away from the noisy, dusty, streets towards the leafy, green expanse that is our local park. Much appreciated by visitors from afar as a World Heritage Site, it is also the more humble source of continued inspiration for many local artists. Here are a few scenes through the changing seasons...

Royal Observatory Late Summer. Oil on canvas, 355w x 250h. £385.

Royal Observatory - Winter. Oil on canvas, 355w x 250h. £385.

Old Friends. Oil on board, framed 340w x 295h. £385.

East Greenwich Peninsula from One Tree Hill. Watercolour.
