Catching up with a back log of drawings, I did this one last summer. We used to live next door to this shop about 10 or so years back.

Elephant & Castle

Standard

I’ve been neglecting this blog a bit lately, quite a while since I last posted. I’ve still been drawing so I’m going to aim to start blogging them again for 2016.

Here’s a few drawings from around the Elephant and Castle. There’s a lot of regeneration work going on around here, the old Elephant is slowly being demolished and a new shiny Elephant is being built in its place. Doubt if much of this will be “affordable”.

It’s been a long time since I posted anything, but the sun is out so a good excuse to get drawing. Took my sketchbook and some watercolours to St James’s Park on Sunday and sat in the sun for a bit. I’ve not done a lot of sketching with water colours outdoors before but thought the day called for a bit of bright colour.

Following on from my last post, here’s another venture into the animal kingdom.  Went to the Horniman Museum at the weekend for the first time, will definateley have to try and get back again. there’s a lot of stuffed animals and skeletons. Spent around an hour drawing Orangutan skull, it was attached to a full skeleton but that was just too complicated to draw. Maybe next time.
