Market Square Cambridge

Hari and I went to Cambridge to see a comedy show last Friday. We stayed overnight and went out for a lovely breakfast on Saturday morning. It started out as a sunny but chilly morning, but that didn’t last very long. By the time we left the cafe, it was raining – storm Arwen was approaching Cambridge! It wasn’t possible to sketch outdoors, so we decided to take refuge in another cafe overlooking Market Square. The market was in full swing. Despite the gloomy weather, the striped tent roofs looked cheerful and festive.

Cambridge Market

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.
