Painting - Oil On Canvas
I was watching the Royal Wedding at the end of April, and felt inspired by the crowds, the colour and the tradition. When the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight performed their flypast I knew that I had to paint this scene.
The title reflects "Continuity" on so many different levels. The continuity of the Crown, the crowds and the aircraft that are kept in fantastic flying condition by their skilled groundcrew. The scene could have taken place at any time in the last sixty five years and possibly the next sixty five too.
The style was inspired by my favourite painting, "Fete de 30 Juin" by Monet. It hangs in d'Orsay in Paris and is full of life and colour. Still we can all dream...
