A bend in the river

By Karuma1970
Earlier in the year with good weather and the virus seemingly in retreat it was possible to get out for a walk.
This artist took advantage of there still being very few people out drinking at this pub on the river in Isleworth to set up his easel. Another, more famous pub, is visible if you look carefully. There has been a church on the site of All Saints' Church which you see in the picture since at least the thirteenth century but the stone tower, which is fifteenth century, is the only pre-twentieth century bit left. Turner painted it but from the other side of the river. The stretch of the river seen here is where both Katherine Howard, who was imprisoned nearby, and Lady Jane Grey embarked on their last journeys to the Tower.

If I look past him I can see what he's painting but I really want to see his painting. Excellent idea to include the artist and his work in what is otherwise a very interesting historical capture on its own.
