Here are the sketches from the last afternoon in London.
– had a meeting with one of my clients, The House of St Barnabas – a charity for homeless people in London – is currently doing some major renovation and I have been doing some architectural illustrations of the Interior Design concepts.(Will tell you more later) It was so much fun to walk around the rooms that I have sketched from photos and to see if the spaces were as I imagined them. (as an architect I am used to imagining spaces so it was fairly close – but the sequencing of the different spaces and how they work together within the house was nice to experience.) Also the amazing original rococo plasterwork – to see that IRL and close up was special!)
– A quick lunch at another cafe known for its great tea and cake… but I just had salad. VERY impressed by the tea!
– A quick sketch of Gibb’s St Mary le Strand
Seriously did not have enough time in London… would love to have a whole month sketching there one time!
On the way home I decided to put my sketchbook away and NOT force myself to sketch in the plane (I wrote notes instead) A major factor for this decision was that I only had 2 spreads left in my (4th) sketchbook and was hoping to do one of the free transit tours during my 4 hour stopover in Seoul.
And that is what I did….
Filling in the time between flights on a long haul is the hardest thing to do when you are travelling solo… but there was a tea place that I visited and drew some tea and cakes to fill in the final hour or so after the tour and before my flight home started boarding.
I have decided not to finish this last page…. the content is all there and to leave it imcomplete is a fitting way to end what was a wonderful but often overwhelming non-stop trip.
Thanks for being part of it – either at the time or now following all my very belated postings.
