The blue bridge
This is Cookham bridge over the Thames. There was a huge outcry when it was painted this bright blue. I think it’s a great colour!
I once hit the pillars of this bridge in a hire boat! Don’t ever ask me to steer……
Up on the bridge is my artist mate and fellow Cookham Wanderer, Stevie Smith, who painted the same view with me.
It was a grey old English day on the day we sat painting this but the reflections were wonderful….especially of the lovely orange red brick hexagonal toll house.
