● 16 Walpole
26" x 18" (66 x 46cm) / Oil on gessoed panel / Private Collection
A private commission for a London client and art collector. The painting is an architectural ‘portrait’ of his professional business premises. I was born opposite the gates of nearby Chelsea Football Club so the architecture of this part of London is homeland to me. It’s ‘in my blood like holy wine’. It’s a privilege to draw and paint it. Even the maddening, inexplicable repetitive curlicues of the balcony railings.
