Oil on canvas.
This was one of a pair of Thames scenes. The owner died several years ago and his executors got in touch to say he’d left them to me in his will, which was so generous. It was such an exciting atmosphere with the tugs and the smoke and the bustle – it’s all far too sanitised today! Look at all these tiny details; the pale ship in the background. I think it was a Swedish timber ship; it used to come in every month. Robin and I used to sit by the Thames painting from life and one day the wind caught his canvas and it was last seen floating down the river to Southend.’
