DRAWINGS & PAINTINGS

Since moving back to London, I've been inspired to pick up pencil and paper and get back into drawing (following a long detour into digital media).  The inspiration has mostly come from what's around me - the buildings, the parks and sculptures, details that I think we can become desensitised to when we're exposed to them on a daily basis.  London provides no shortage of subject matter.  I manage to push out the odd figurative picture as well.

I had to do this from a photo as the alternative would have been standing on a traffic island in a busy road for two hours.

London seen from one side of Tate Modern's new tower. I might have a go at the views from the other sides once I've recovered from drawing this one.
