Watercolour paintings of London

In lieu of any furniture reveals, I thought I'd share some paintings I did while I lived in London back in 2001/02. Nothing spectacular (I'm definitely no artist) but they bring back some wonderful memories.

The Chapel at Lincoln's Inn Field


inside the Priory Church of Saint Bartholomew the Great, London  


garden next to Southwark Cathedral, London


window detail at Barristers Chambers, Lincoln's Inn, London


flowers details, Kew Gardens, London




and a very quick one from the sunken garden at Kensington Palace


Regardless of your skill level; drawing or painting while travelling is a wonderful way to really absorb the detail of your surroundings and to ensure vivid memories.  Do you paint or draw?

  1. These are really pretty - I especially love the first one of the church and your shadow detailing!
