Of course I drew the inevitable sketch of people talking over a meal to add to my collection of similar sketches - see:
- the list of blog posts in Interior landscapes with food - a Sketchbook and
- the sketches themselves in the Interior Landscapes Gallery on my portfolio website.
Academy restaurantI've uploaded some photos of the murals to Flickr and you can see a slideshow of the Academy Restaurant Murals here.
Designed by Norman Shaw in 1885 and recently renovated by London-based architects MUMA. The Academy Restaurant is an ideal setting for art lovers to relax and enjoy a delicious buffet menu amid celebrated murals by Fred Appleyard, Harold Speed, Gilbert Spencer and Leonard Rosoman. The Murals have been illuminated for the first time, fulfilling the original intentions of the artists.
