A painting of The Anchor, Bankside

On a sunny October afternoon I sketched the pub
I took my sketch and extended it, needed to get Tower Bridge in!

finished painting worked up from my sketches

On a sunny October afternoon I sat on the wall with my back to the Thames and sketched the Anchor pub. A wonderful place to sit out on sunny bankside and watch the world go by. Samuel Pepys sat there and watched the devastation of the fire of London 350 years ago. there certainly are some good views. I wanted to paint this view, but needed to extend it to fit in the Thames and Tower Bridge!
The final painting and I imagined a few extra people, including Pepys, an artist, and a sausage dog.
