Marketing work

In 2000 artist Stephen Whatley was commissioned by Historic Royal Palaces and the Pool of London Partnership, to undertake a series of 30 paintings for HM Tower of London. Many of the works were painted on location in and around the Tower. Others were inspired by various historical images. In the spring of 2001 the paintings were reproduced on steel vitreous enamel panels lining the walls of the Tower Hill pedestrian underpass, connecting Tower Hill Underground station to the Tower of London.[3][4]
