Autumn – London – rain – these are three words that describe not just a time and a place, but a British weather condition for which this island is known for: rain.
We have a special connection with this phenomenon and it is no wonder why it is featured so often in paintings and photography.
Autumn in London by James odubote captures precisely that: an autumnal day in the capital city, with yellow leaves and lots of rain.
The iconic Big Ben in the background sets the genre of the artwork – cityscape – while the clouds, the rain and the water reflections set the mood of the painting.
Created in oil on canvas, Autumn in London is an atmospheric and moody painting, quintessentially British, perfectly illustrating the season we find ourselves in at the moment and created in an impressionistic style.
The artwork not only captures our beloved capital city but the artist’s impression of autumn in London.
“ As an impressionist painter, I seek to combine the physicality of what I see with my own emotional response to the subjects that I paint, which are mainly figurative, cityscapes and nostalgic art”, says the artist.
If you miss London, all you need is a simple glance at this painting to get a perfect capture of the essence of the city. Enjoy!
