Looking across the Thames towards Big Ben and Westminster, the moody evening light soaks the scene in subtle copper, bronze, and gold tones.
A flash of red across Westminster bridge suggests the movement of a red bus, one of London’s principal icons. Quick dripped lines give a sense of fluidity and pace to the painting’s surface, and also add detail to the structural forms within the piece.
Responding rapidly to the scene, Paul keeps his brush marks visible and loose, focussing on capturing the ever-fleeting moments of light.

"Thames Flash" is part of the following Collection(s):
This collection of dynamic cityscapes and abstracts of the UK capital reflects Paul’s love of London’s urban landscape and skyline, one of the most recognisable in the world. The skyline features a unique blend of buildings both old and new that distinguishes the London cityscape from so many other capitals. Paul strives to reresent this iconic element of the city’s culture in all his paintings, always seeking to best highlight the diversity of the architecture and to encapsulate the multitude of moods this provokes.
