Painting of Big Ben, the clock towers and the Houses of Paliament - ©2018- Cathy Read - 61 x 61cm Watercolour and acrylic ink

Big Ben

Inspired by Big Ben, Cathy Read’s Painting and Poem of the same name. Hear the rhythm of the chime in the words.
The ultimate iconic symbol of London.
Feels ancient, but it’s surprisingly new, for historic architecture that is.
Vibes of stability, reliability and ability.

The passage of time marks the timepiece.
