Borough High Street

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.

See my work from the initial sketches to the final painting below.
