For the past two weeks, Peter Spens has had two of the best seats in the house at picturesque Horse Guards Parade.
Spens has been splitting his time between a spot just off the beach volleyball court and the Horse Guards balcony that overlooks the stadium.
The two vantage points have helped him work on a painting of a place that, with Buckingham Palace and Big Ben clearly in view, is perhaps the London Games' most visually stunning venue.
Spens was still working on his masterpiece late in the women's gold medal match on Wednesday night.
He has one more day to complete it. The men's gold medal match is Thursday night, after which the beach volleyball tournament will conclude.
