    This oil painting was inspired by the photograph taken by my schoolmate who traveled to London during a business trip.  It was painted in this elongated dimension to highlight the grandness of Big Ben from a low angle.  The evening sky was painted in a mixture of colors and brush strokes.  The light rays of the moving traffic portray a translucent veil outside the architecture to give a contemporary yet moody tone.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.

    Fantastic light!


    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.
