Disappearing views of Battersea

I’ve just taken a proof of the first block of my new linocut – the view from the footbridge at Wandsworth Road train station, looking north towards the river.
I’ve been thinking about this one for a while now – I absolutely love these great sweeps of train tracks.
Sadly we won’t be able to see this view of Battersea Power Station for much longer as some much needed ‘luxury’ flats are being built all around the back of it, obscuring it forever.
London is changing so rapidly that between two of my sketching trips, they took down the gas holder. I sometimes feel I’m documenting a disappearing world…
