A New Year. A new start

Observatory from Greenwich Park

I wanted to start the New Year with a sketch – something positive to start 2021 with. 

The weather wasn’t ideal; I had barely got started when the rain came. The rest was done inside a warm car while having a New Year’s day ‘picnic’ of milk-rice and tea.

Urban sketching and watercolour is my hobby. I'm a biochemist by training and work for the NHS full time as a healthcare scientist. Most of my free time, outside my day job is devoted to art and urban sketching. I am a self confessed nerd when it comes to watercolour and art materials in general. I approach them with the same curiosity and passion as I do for biochemistry - because after all, colour is science! I travel to sketch and sketch to travel. I'm an active member of Urban Sketchers London - part of a global sketching community which I only discovered in 2017.
