Sketching at the RA - Friends Room #7

I haven't been posting a lot of late - and it's not that I haven't been sketching but rather that I haven't been scanning my sketches!

Lots of things to do meant some activities had to take a place in the queue and get done if I had the time.  So now having completely omitted to post in May, I'm on catchup! 

I spent a very interesting afternoon back in April at the 25th London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy of Arts.

No scope for photographs - but I did sketch in the exhibition halls and - as per usual - in the Friends Room where I enjoyed my cup of tea and had a nice sit down on one of the sofas after wending my way round the very many stands.

The Friends Room sketch joins the series which I've been developing through trying to sketch people and their surroundings every time I visit - you can find links to the others in Interior landscapes with food - a Sketchbook

I'm going to be back at the RA next week - visiting a Friends Preview of the Summer Exhibition which opens to the public on 14th June


  1. I like the tender, delicate colours of your drawings. You do wonderful things with your coloured pencils!
