Hi all,

My latest painting, it's acrylic on canvas. A disused rowing club in Hackney Wick, East London. C&C welcome.

Wow That's so vivid. Great subject and perspective from across the water. You really nailed the reflections.

It's a lovely work, good colours for the reflections too ... I think some gentle breaking of the reflected images suggesting slight ripple or movement in the water would add to the atmosphere.

Very nice, love the reflections and the writing is perfect in both the real and reflections.

Thank you all for your very nice comments!

It's a good suggestion. I had some ripples in one of the first paintings I posted, also a scene in the same location, and was (and still am) on the fence about adding some here too. On the one hand they would look nice, but on the other I kind of like the stillness, for some reason. Also, I got to the stage where I was fidgeting with the painting, going back and forth with adjustments, which started to feel like they didn't matter much, so I decided to stop and let it be. But I might return to it...

You are so good at buildings and the rest looks great too.
Would you know if the rowing club has other premises now? Just curious as our two sons used to row. Oh...just realised I can google for info.

Great reflections, but what really stands out for me is the light play on the buildings, and I love the sky.

Such a cool painting ... everyone else already made comments I would have made. A scene I'd never think to paint. Great work.
