My First Ever Solo Trip To London

At the start of the year, I took my first ever solo trip to London. I’ve had day trips to London by myself in the past but never actually stayed there on my own.

Urban Sketching in London

While I was in London in June I thought I would try my hand at urban sketching. This is a relatively new art style (at least it is to me), where you draw while on location. A big part of urban sketching is that the drawing doesn't have to look true to life, it's almost like the impressionist movement in that you get the idea without doing a whole finished painting.
