I've observed that when tackling these monthly postcards, an idea for where I should do a sketch comes into my head straight away. With Vivien it had to be the Mall Galleries because that's where we always meet up when she's in London. Also since I always walk to the Galleries from down by the river and then walk around exhibitions three times, that's got to count as a walk!
I've always loved the view down The Mall with the huge plane trees with the really interesting bark and the colours of the dappled sunshine.
Then, of course, it's also a good way of remembering that there was a rather big event which involved The Mall last month - on the way from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace!
