So now that I’m getting into the habit of taking my sketchbook with me, I have a couple of sketches from my travels. I didn’t get time to sketch in Nottingham but I made a flying visit to London at the weekend to see my friend’s band (Young Aviators – Irish rascals) play a gig. The morning after, I found myself in Kings Cross for 4 hours:
It’s actually quite hard to find somewhere to sit with an interesting view without being bothered by noisy children or people asking for spare change in Kings Cross. But I sat near the announcement boards for a little while so sketched it, but I think I got a bit too happy with the thick marker.
From London, I got the train to Lincoln where I’m staying with Sara and Glen whilst I’m at my internship (thanks guys!). Lincoln is a beautiful city with lots of places to sketch, so I headed up Steep Hill and sat opposite the Magna Carta pub:
With the golden postbox outside and the lovely buildings I thought it was the perfect place to draw… and then it started to rain! So there’s my barely started sketch complete with ink splodges. I’ll be going back when it’s a bit drier hopefully at the end of the week.
What has everyone else been sketching?
