London

I’m in the UK for a while, and working hard, while trying to fit in some visits and exhibitions when I can. Here’s a sketch I did today watching my niece and her dance group in the little town of Horsham. It was adorable, and sort of like going back in time.Whenever there’s a chance, I stroll in the garden, and soak up the green-ness of the Spring. I could sketch plants and flowers forever…I’ve been inspired by some amazing exhibitions, sketching and making notes as I go. This one was at the London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy. I love trying to work out how different prints were made, and what techniques were used…

I especially loved the Josef Frank exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum. So many incredible patterns and designs!I was incredibly moved by the Howard Hodgkin exhibition Absent Friends at the National Portrait Museum. I’ve always loved his work, but this show made me see the paintings in a different way…So much to do while I’m here. More London sketches next week!
