A bit of London

I have been thinking that while I am in London, I should paint something of the city.But since I not really good in painting architecture and cityscapes , I was stalling it for quite some time. the 'Eureka!' moment happened yesterday when I was going through my camera pics.I took this picture when we went to the Thames two weeks ago.These musicians were stting under the bridge and playing a lively band!..I took this pic from the bridge above. So, we settle for this!
A little bit of London, surely. If you have been to Thames, you can't miss the artists, musicians, and the funny man Charlie Chaplin ( he is next on my list!) on the walk besides the river. I loved them all.

  9. A joyous painting, Arti! You really captured the feel of the music, too, with the flickering light and colors and dynamic diagonal composition. What fun!
