Although most famous for his paintings of wildlife, British artist David Shepherd painted this picture for The Friends of London Transport Museum in 1994. It depicts two of London's iconic buses, the Routemaster and the R.T type, crossing Westminster Bridge in 1966. Shepherd worked directly from the vehicles in the museum, allowing him to apply the same attention to detail to the painting as he did to his renowned wildlife works.
