This may be a painting depicting Archer and his wife Beatrice walking in the November twilight, Archer sporting his top hat with walking cane in hand. His paintings often reflected his life and travels.
This painting has an fantastic atmospheric quality, painted in subtle muted colours with a lovely softness in the execution of the paint. It really captures a foggy November evening in London if that is where it is.The couple lived in Ickenham, Uxbridge in their later married life.
It is anticipated that some of Archer's paintings will be available to purchase as limited edition prints in the future. In the meantime permission has been granted to Paradis Terrestre Greeting Cards to produce high quality greeting cards from some of Archer's paintings.
