View from Portrait Restaurant, National Portrait Gallery

I was at the National Portrait Gallery this morning for a Press Breakfast about an exhibition next year to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee - and stayed on afterwards to sketch the view.  Despite the fact it was a miserable grey rainy day in January and I had to look very hard to find the colour!

At least it isn't raining as hard in London as it has been in Queensland and Brazil.

This is a not very good photo.  I'll do a scan and stitch when I've got a bit more time.


  1. You have captured winter in London perfectly in this sketch!

  2. Beautiful Katherine...absolutely winter in London!

  3. You make a gray winter day look quite beautiful.

  4. How beautiful Despite the difficulties in finding the colours, there's so much light in this sketch!
