The process of a picture is always interesting to me. I like seeing how a drawing is made, abstracted and translated into other mediums. Here are three versions of the same view of Thameside by John Minton. After the Second World War Minton took on a series of paintings of London’s Riverside and Docklands in rather bold contrast to some of his muted war works.

 John Minton – The Barge, 1946

 John Minton –‘Rotherhithe from Wapping’, 1946

 John Minton – Thameside, 1948
