Linocut, 30 x 24cm


Another corner of the city of London. This is the view looking west from the "Gherkin" on St Mary's Axe. In the middle: the church of St Helen's Bishopsgate, dating from the 12th century. In the distance: the "NatWest" tower, now called "Tower 42", built in the 1970s.

This print will be exhibited in the New English Art Club Open exhibition at the Mall Galleries, 18 - 27 June 2015.

Really it's too busy and crowded to draw comfortably here, but we need to sit down after that climb up the hill.
