A Trip to the V&A Museum

 6x8" oil on canvas board. $45. Available here

The V&A museum in London is an amazing place to visit. Not only are the exhibits impressive, but the building itself is a work of art. It's full of arches and marble columns, intricately carved ceilings, balconies; it's beautifully lit, and full of people. I snapped a bunch of photos during one visit, and promised myself I'd paint it someday. This is my first attempt; there is so much colour in white when you look closely. This is the view from the lobby, looking towards a hall full of sculptures. There's a fountain in the middle- it's a great place to sit and sketch the surroundings.
