Charcoal on paper, highlighted with pastel.
This is a painting made during the period when renovation on the power station of Battersea in London just began. Thanks to a photographer, I got a sneak peek at the working site. I met this friendly guy by the side entrance and the workers wouldn't let us in because they were understandably scared to get into trouble with their boss over this. The photographer, who was a resourceful guy, simply bribed the watchman of the depot next to the power station with £50, so that we could climb on the outer wall there. As a result, we had a full view over the site.
For those who do not know Battersea power station, it was used as the cover on Pink Floyd's album "Animals".
