Early morning sketches in Cambridge


7.15am Dropped off Judy at Jimmy’s night shelter where she does breakfast.

7.30am Street park in centre of Cambridge. Walk and do sketches with pen and black chinagraph pencil

8.30am Back home

9.00am Photo sketches, and blog.

There is another side to old Cambridge, and  that is some fantastic modern buildings, and the ones shown above are all within ten minutes walk of one another . The sketch immediately above is the Cambridge University library by Giles Gilbert Scott who also designed Liverpool Anglican cathedral, the powerstation that is now Tate Modern, and the famous red British telephone box. Above that is work by James Stirling, and Norman Foster.

  2. Cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Absolutely fab – like the “rough and ready” sketches; brings out real character in an artist, and bet it feels great to have got out first thing and been drawing. Loving the posts:-)
