I just realised that I never posted as individual images the sketches I did from 4 wonderful visits to Borromini (Bear)’s favourite Borromini(the architect) building – mine too!

It really is an amazing building – I kept turning up close to the middle of the day closing time so never had enough time there.

This first visit I only got time to draw a single column… but after that each visit I focussed on a different part of the building- enjoying George H Sullivans wonderful words from “Not built in a Day”
