During the first lockdown we painted at home and went for walks around our area in Finsbury Park, but then fter living in North London for 25 years, my wife and I moved to Gravesend in North Kent last September.
So we spent the last lockdown in an estuary town, full of historical connections to London & on the edge of some wonderful countryside: from the river, across the marshes to the hills of the weald. I think during the lockdown a lot of people have remembered or reconnected to the natural world and for us this was very pronounced.
Shell of a Building is from a site of one of our exploratory walks across the Higham & Cliffe marshes (so familiar to Pip in Great Expectations). The empty building is part of the abandoned ruins of a pre-first World war munitions factory, located on the desolate marshes for obvious reasons.
