Scenes from Post-War London 1946 - 1960 exhibition

Getting ready for this exhibition where I will have 3 large paintings...details to follow... and a collection of prints of early works for sale.

Tea Time at Carrons Wharf, 1948. Poster colour, crayon and Indian ink. A docker pauses for a mug of tea while children play hoop-la in the middle distance. The pointed shape above his cap probably refers to the steeple of St Marys Church Rotherhithe. Life in London appeared very grim to me, a culture shock after the freedom and tranquility of Devon where I was evacuated to as a child. In 1946 I started as a Junior at Camberwell School of Art and then things started to look up. This painting is sold but prints are available at the exhibition or contact me directly on
