Oil Painting Of London ‘A Beach On The Southbank’ by Richard P Cook
This marvellous oil painting of London captures a beautiful sunny day on a beach on the Southbank. Richard Cook brings us this wonderful scene of Londoners taking time out from the ‘hustle and bustle’ of London life and enjoying a bit of sunshine.
This view was in fact captured on a typically chilly London morning, which made the ‘sunbathers’ enjoying the sand so enthusiastically particularly charming.
Adorn your living room, dining room or hallway with this oil painting of London – perfect for lovers of the awe-inspiring architecture and the river Thames.

Richard was then invited to complete his post-graduate studies at the Royal Academy schools, London.

Richard has been a member of the Royal Society of British Artists for 40 years. His work features portraiture and famous landscapes such as this painting of London.
