LONDON MARATHON 2011 – NEW PAINTING STARTED


I went to see the London Marathon last April on a lovely sunny day.

Standing near the Winston Churchill statue at Westminster, I did some drawings and took photos.

Here are some of the sketches I have collected together to use in my new painting.

SMITHFIELD NOCTURNE CYCLING

SMITHFIELD NOCTURNE CYCLE RACING – JUNE 11


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I went to Smithfield, in the City of London, on Saturday to watch the cycle racing.  The Smithfield Nocturne is an annual event, and attracts crowds, quite of few of whom have cycled up there so bikes everywhere.  Last year I also went along and made three oil paintings from sketches and photos.  This year I did a few sketches but drawing cyclists in a race is difficult, to say the least!  The fun event which I saw during the evening was the vintage penny farthing bikes in a race.  They go surprisingly fast and so even my photos were blurred.  I have put the photos on my Flickr page.
