East from the Millennium

Southwark Bridge
The original sketch from St Paul's side of the Millennium Bridge. I returned the next day to finish off the drawing. On Saturday, even though the sky was a greenish blue with ominous grey clouds, the early afternoon sunlight turned the buildings to lovely ice cream colours. Unfortunately, I had to hold that thought, as on Sunday our weather returned to normal.

Courts of Justice

Courts of Justice in Strand
This is a rather long sketch done with red pencil. Royal courts is a very interesting and challenging piece of architecture to draw from!

Rising Sun over Carter Lane EC4

   Rising Sun over Carter Lane.                             Pencil and watercolour 149 x 210 mm

I went out to paint from Blackfriars Bridge this afternoon but spotted this cosy little group before I got there. Bright and rather cold but I know I wouldn't have survived very long over  the Thames today. Alright, it wasn't that bad ... I shouldn't be so weedy.
