Flying high

According to Twitter, it’s Museum Week and yesterday I visited the RAF museum.  We are very lucky in London to have so many amazing museums to visit but I have to admit I’d never been to this one before.  It was well worth the trip from sunny south London via the Northern Line to Colindale with lots to see and the bonus of free entry!  I used watercolour pencils and a water brush for the colour on these two sketches.

The underbelly of Hoxton

and The Find. Pencil on A5

My take on the evening drawing with James Hobbs at The Underbelly venue on Thursday night. There are others on my site and on Art on the Left. Having to work unsociable hours is the way to go.
