In London you don´t have to travel much to see beautiful scenes because they are all around. And neither do I – this charming place named the Borough High Street is a mere few steps from my college.
Beautiful old buildings that have stood in their places for centuries are now neighbouring modern structures. This mixture of the original and modern architecture creates quite new interesting environment to live in.
Usually busy place was captured in a simpler and calmer way to show the the contrast of architecture. To create a strong sense of the distance I left the initial stages of my painting become a part of the finished piece.
