Hi, Here is a painting of my friends and musicians having a good time at a pub in London. Oil on canvas, 60 by 90 cm or 24 by 35 inches; Lukas 1862 and Old Holland oil paints.
This is painted from photo taken when we made a trip to London in 2015. This was a rather dark and spooky place but friendly with lots of beer branches, I think somewhere near Kings Cross Road. I changed the background a bit, moved the interiors around and added the wall light to suit the composition. I painted in some background people who are their favorite musicians, ― from different periods, as the oil painting is to some extent timeless in many ways. My idea was to paint the background more loosely than the foreground, but still that the background people would be recognizable.
