Three Le Carre paintings

I made these for Remix Revival: an art remix for the short story Maybe Just Living. It was nice to have an excuse to paint some Oxford scenes, though it's surprising how hard it is to find reference photos for Oxford scenes that are not quite the typical picture-postcard. I had to paint the Trinity gates from the Google streetmap image and try to make up the lighting in my head from memory. I thought there would be loads of photos of Broad St at night, but no, apparently not.

(I don't think canon tells us which was Jim Prideaux's college, so I decided it was Trinity. )
