Your eye for the most minute detail is nothing short of amazing Richard, I know as I have attempted the Houses of Parliament and my daubings pale in comparison..

Richard Harpum replied:

Mike, Great to hear from you again. You are most kind. Thank you. But I am sure that you are quite capable of doing justice to the HoP. However, the detail is rather repetitive!

This painting shows the iconic Elizabeth Tower which houses the famous Big Ben - the name of the giant bell at the top of the tower, which is 96 metres (315 feet) high. It stands at the north end of the Houses of Parliament, also know as the Palace of Westminster, the seat of the UK government. The tower was completed in 1859 and the Great Clock started on 31 May 31st with the Great Bell's strikes heard for the first time on July 11th. I visit London a few times every year and on this occasion was fortunate enough to capture the city in bright sunlight after about 4 of snow had fallen. Passing in front of the building is a red London double-decker bus. And my favourite dog, Oscar, makes another appearance. The buildings have changed dramatically over the course of nearly a thousand years of history. Transformed from a royal residence to the home of a modern democracy, the current tower is one of the most recognised buildings in the world. Owing its stunning Gothic architecture to the 19th-century architect Sir Charles Barry, the Palace was built between the late 1830s and the early 1860s. Now part of an UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Palace contains a fascinating mixture of both ancient and modern buildings, and houses a vast collection of furnishings, archives and works of art. I used this painting for one of my own Christmas cards.
