Lunch at Fortnum and Masons

Following on from yesterday's post, two years ago - on the 9th June 2006 - I saw three exhibitions and about 2,500 images in terms of paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture. In the middle of the day I sketched at the St James Restaurant on the 4th floor of Fortnum and Masons and these three sketches are the result.

Details as follows:
  • The first is a double page spread in my Moleskine in pencil with colour added with coloured pencils when I got home
  • the second is A3 size (approx. 15" x 11") and was executed in pen and sepia ink (no erasing!) in my Daler Rowney sketchbook
  • the third is a double page spread in my Daler Rowney sketchbook - A3 size (approx. 15" x 11"). It was drawn in pencil with touches of colour reinforced with coloured pencils when I got home
Note - Most of this post was first posted on Making A Mark as Lunch at Fortnum and Masons on 10th June 2006.

  1. I remember these! I remember delighting in the red of the raspberry in the first sketch and in the green of that one and the last one, too. And your interior sketches are always among my favorites anyway.

  2. Katherine, I've only just realised that you have this 'sketchbook' blog. The drawings in this post are wonderful. Lovely, lovely work thoughout in fact.
