I captured this scene on my mobile phone as I was walking down The Mall in London, delivering another of my paintings to The Mall Galleries. Fortunately, something spooked the white horse as I took the photograph. Sheer luck! When I got home, I was able to paint the scene from my photograph. The Horseguards are a terrific sight to see and I love painting them. This painting will always be a favourite of mine because of the memory of that very sunny day in London, walking down The Mall, on my way to The Gallery with another of my paintings to exhibit. Everything about this painting makes me happy!
