London Street


                      London Street, by John Bampfield, recently sold by Webbs Gallery, London.

In 1967 I left my home town, Kidderminster, and headed off for the bright lights of London.  I remember feeling overwhelmed by the size of the place and the height of the buildings, but strangely at home with the 'feel' of some of the streets,  particularly in the early evenings during the winter.

The painting above brings together my experience of both 'towns' I think and gives me a chance to revisit my youth !
