#451 'Admiralty Arch' 10x12"
It’s funny how you can love a painting you’ve done one moment & hate it the next. I started this last year en plein air & abandoned it in disgust when I got home. Saw it again recently & thought that’s worth working on! & now I’m happy with the result. Such an up & down painting life!!
The main things I changed was adding people especially the foreground biker as there was a big area of pink tarmac! - I toned down the pink it was too bright. Plus adding more light through the arch to draw your eye into it and putting the bus in, got to be done London and red :-)
