Approaching shower over the Thames

"Approaching shower over the Thames" London by Nop Briex 2014. Royal Talens Cobra oil paint on canvas, 80 x 60 cm. What a marvellous afternoon it was. Bright sunny spells mixed with a shower now and then. Great backlight view on the London Eye, the Thames, Westminster with its Elizabeth tower and Big Ben bell... London is the place for me!

Plein Air painter mr Koetsier in Hampstead

In a fancy London suburb, named Hampstead I met this fellow Londoner plein air painter. He had a very small postcard size palet and he admitted it is very small. His name A.L. Koetsier. A Dutch name because his English mother was married with a Dutchman. What a great meeting it was.

Portland Grey Busses Red Regent Street

"Portland Grey Busses Red in Regent Street" by Nop Briex. Oil on canvas, 80 x 60 cm

Most of the London City buildings are made of grey rock stone from Portland (Dorset) and that matches well with the contrasting red London busses.
