Any eagle-eyed readers who have been sitting on the top deck of a number 8 bus going through Bethnal Green in the last few days may have spotted Nicholas Borden standing at his easel upon the steps of St John working on this painting of the crossing outside the Salmon & Ball.
Three years have passed since I first met Nicholas painting at his easel on the corner of Vallance Rd in a blizzard and he is still working on the street most days, even if he has managed to find a more sheltered location beneath the portico of Sir John Soane’s church.
When we had the cold snap recently, Nicholas painted the view from his kitchen window that you see below but otherwise – blessed with the constitution of a fisherman – he can reliably discovered at his easel upon the London street in all weathers.
