Looking east from London Bridge

This is the view looking east from the southern end of London Bridge - right next to the rather impressive building at No 1 London Bridge which houses the offices of PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Parts of the foreshore were exposed but the tide was coming in quite fast while I sketched.

This sketch, as always, has to be done standing up because of the height of the bridge 'walls'. I usually have a time limit of about 10 minutes for standing which I think I might have stretched a bit! Which could of course be the reason why, a minute after I left this spot, I took a tumble down the steps to Borough Market on the other side of the road (see the previous post).

  1. You must be careful. Last time I took a tumble off one step I broke a bone in my foot. So many gorgeous places to sketch in London. Making me homesick!

  2. Hi Katherine,
    ouch, I winced when I read your story. Did anyone help you when you fell? I guess it's also hard to pay attention to 'normal' things after just being in a drawing zone, that concentration...then suddenly we're off moving again.
    I hope you're ok!
