‘Light into the Dark’ –  ‘I was walking back to the tube after attending a private view when I saw this building site scene  and I was transfixed by the intensity of the light against the both the very dark sky and river. So I took a couple of snaps on my camera for reference as I knew I’d have to paint this terrific composition. This work contained a number of new technical challenges for me; the depiction of intense light on water, strong light sources against the dark and it was my first night scene. I’m really pleased with the result, this one will stick in the mind.
