Drawing at St Katherine's Docks

Line Drawing of The Dickens Inn at St Katherine's Docks.....

... and yes, the sign is skew. Some of my students wanted to go up to London to draw at a different location. A great idea. I had been doing a demonstration in Croydon the night before so I had not slept well that night. Too much adrenalin coursing through my veins. I, therefore, decided to focus on a detailed line drawing of the Inn and it kept me busy for a good 3 hours. One literally takes one's sharpened pencil 'for a walk' and it helps one explore every contour and texture change in one's subject. An exciting way to illustrate and it helped my eyes to remain open. Slept like a log that night!
