A Beautiful Hidden Garden to Know

I have been going for some time to a local little park called “The New River Path” and also known as New River Walk. This is a quite hidden park and is not too long or but very beautiful. I like to go there to get inspiration for new paintings. I think that this is gorgeous in any season.

A bit of the history . . .

In Islington is one of the head of an old project. It’s a water supply aqueduct built in 1613 to bring drinking water from Hertfordshire to North London. Since 1992 authorities, local people and partners have worked to create a 45 Km (28 Miles) footpath that follow the course of the New River. It links the inner city to the open countryside. In some areas the water source is piped and going underground.

I am Francisco a painter based in Islington, London . I was trained in architecture and used to work in this area until 2019. Currently hundred per cent dedicated to my paintings which are my passion. As a former architect I love buildings, cityscapes, parks and nature landscapes. For years I have been working on a collection of watercolours of pubs of London which are my stars through my customers. I want to do at lest one hundred of these paintings with pubs. Currently I am over fifty done. So if you love paintings and pubs, keep in touch.
