Sketches from a London Bus

Over the summer, I spent some time down in London, with our son. I was in the middle of Sketch Book Skool  drawing frenzy, making the most of every moment I could to draw – even on the top of a London bus!

Once you start sketching, you can’t help but notice how much more you want to draw and it was during this time that I made the rash promise to myself that I would draw the Holloway Road.

After a few months preparation I have begun to work on the first of what I hope will be many more drawings, but thought you would like a flavour of what’s to come with some of my summer sketches.

Thanks for reading!
