The Thames below Tower Bridge

The Thames Below Tower Bridge is my latest oil painting. This colourful piece took me several weeks. Finally, the work is finished and I am happy to share it with you along with several photos of my painting process.

I used my sketch as well as a photo as an initial reference material. Later I stopped looking at my reference material and let my creativity go.

I spent a long time painting the river. At the beginning I was only looking for the light and dark shapes.  Then I gave this layer of paint a week to dry. Finally, I could add more colourful layers.The Thames below TB IV
