This painting was made last March, just before lockdown. I had painted a larger version bought by Newable, the company whose offices I painted it from, to hang in their foyer. When I painted this one, people had started to work from home, so I could capture the domestic life happening on the balcony opposite. I love the contrast between the old and new buildings in this view. It made me think of London's history and got me reading Dickens Little Dorrit, which centres around this area.
