Painting the City of London School on Victoria Embankment

I’ve been painting the “City of London” School building rather a lot recently, sometimes from real life, other times from photos or even from previous drawings. I thought I’d go back and kill 2 birds with one stone, or, in the slightly more charming Italian version of the saying, get 2 pigeons with one bean. I wanted to paint the school on site, possibily from quite close by and at dusk, and I also wanted to text my brand new half field easel, a departure from my habitual stool and sketchbook routine. So here’s a photo of the easel in action – a great success!
