On the same day I painted Big Ben, I also painted this piece, It concentrated more on clouds and distance. This scene was the first time I used my pochade box on my lap without the aid of the tripod stand it was quite comfortable and easy to use too.
London Eye, Mid morning light, 6" x 8", Oil on board, 2010
I did this piece on a board this time and it worked well because the board had been primed with a warm off white colour which worked well with this scene and meant I didn't need to paint some places, they actually painted themselves.
That's me with box on my lap
I have used more diluted paint here but with more vigorous brushstrokes.

Enjoy the pictures.
