A Glimpse of St.Paul's



St.Paul's again, but from a different spot. When we arrived for our plein air session, the sun was beaming through this passage way and we were inspired by the shadows of the passers by. Unfortunately that changed very quickly due to clouds coming and going. So neither of us managed to capture the first impression but the view was interesting nevertheless.

Lunch Break

Lunch Break by Liza Hirst

There are sooo many restaurants, cafés, sandwich bars, pubs etc. here in London, it is unbelievable. And even more the fact that they seem to be busy nonstop, no matter what time of day. Anyway, this is a typical scene, especially around lunch time, when they all spill out of the offices in search of something to bite and have the luck to enjoy their break in a relaxed place like this one.

Rainy Day

Rainy Day by Liza Hirst

Unfortunately the weather in England is quite different to France, but at least these
incredibly dark clouds lend themselves to a good picture. I saw them last Sunday in Tunbridge Wells, a nice place in Kent, south of London.

Red Scarf

Red Scarf by Liza Hirst

Looks a bit too winterly for this time of year but this is a painting I painted a while ago and never got round to posting earlier on. Apart from that, temperatures in London
aren't really summerly at the moment either.

Barbican and Shard

Barbican and Shard by Liza Hirst

Today my friend Olha Pryymak and I met up for a plein air session at the canal in Islington. At last the weather was good and it was great fun (although the light kept changing...). Much nicer than being out there on my own. The two towers on the right are the Barbican and the new Shard Tower, which is the tallest in Europe at the moment.

La Defense by Night

La Defense by Night by Liza Hirst


It's been ages, as you might have noticed and I am very, very happy to be back.
Back here, back to painting, back to me (maybe, hopefully...)
I haven't been ill or anything like that, just occupied with other things. Sometimes I need a break from painting.
To get started again, I chose a photo that a friend of mine sent me recently. He lives in Paris and enjoyes this view from his balcony to La Defense. Lucky him.

Winterly Warmth

Winterly Warmth by Liza Hirst

Another seat at Camden Passage, waiting for somebody to cuddle up in the blanket in order to enjoy sitting outside in winter. I found it difficult to take a photo of the finished painting without reflections and unfortunately it turned out too blue as well. Its actually more white than here.

At Camden Passage

At Camden Passage by Liza Hirst

Camden Passage is a small winding street in Islington, seamed with antique shops, vintage- and lifestyle boutiques, cafés and pubs. This was on a cold weekday - tables and chairs pushed together, blankets hanging over the backrest, waiting for the crowds at the weekend, when a flea market spreads out in the street, attracting loads of people, rambling and enjoying a beer or coffee in the open outdoor spaces.

Looking Down

Looking Down by Liza Hirst

Not only does the "One New Change" shopping mall offer a great view of St.Paul's but it has interesting aspects of its own, like this opening between two glass walls with slivered reflections - a nearly abstract image.

Inspite of it being very crowded, I am glad I got round to visiting the Da Vinci exhibition on Friday. It proved definitely worth queuing for! On show were sketches and paintings created during Leonardo's time in Milan, highlighting his two versions of the "Virgin of the Rocks" and of course the "Last Supper", of which a full scale copy was on display, painted by one of his pupils just before the original work deteriorated. It was interesting to be able to compare the two virgins - shown together for the first time - as they had been painted with a time lag of several years and "reveal a change in Leonardo's ideas from an art rooted in the observation of nature to one where the artist's powers of invention might reveal a glimpse of the devine imagination" (quoted from the exhibition leaflet). Of the two, I personally preferred the first one, because it seemed more alive and warmer than the second one. On the whole, I was more taken by his drawings, of which to my surprise most were very small, if not tiny. (Needless to say anything about the quality...)

St. Paul's III

St. Paul's III by Liza Hirst

Happy New Year everyone!I hope you all had a great holiday.
I am still working on views of St.Paul's Cathedral and have here tried to capture its majestic presence, even more apparent at night when lights make it stand out of the dark blue sky.

On Wilmington Square

On Wilmington Square by Liza Hirst

I finally managed to get my act together and paint outside! And as my friend René predicted, it was a great experience. I had never done this in a city where people keep going by, looking at what you're doing and was a bit nervous about it. Mind you, I did choose a spot without too many passers by. I could concentrate well and am not unhappy with the result.
Btw, I decided not to post the other sketches I did a few days ago - just weren't good enough.

Lights in Bedford Square

Lights in Bedford Square by Liza Hirst

As the days get shorter, lights are switched on earlier - allowing a look into flats and offices with vast rooms and sparkling chandeliers hanging from high ceilings. Such beautiful, warm light!I think, nowadays most of the houses on Bedford Square unfortunately are only offices. But how great must it have been for the people who lived there before the centre of London was taken over by business mainly!

Lunch at St.Pancras Station

Lunch at St.Pancras Station by Liza Hirst

We happened to pass by St.Pancras station the other day and were very impressed with how it has been renovated, firstly for the Olympic Games. This is where the Eurostar arrives - the train from Paris to London that goes through the tunnel under the channel. I found it very cool that one could sit right next to one of the trains while dining - an amazing idea.
