It was incredible to see how quickly all of our sketches improved over the course of this trip. Personally, sketching wasn’t a strong suite of mine so I decided to explore a different style of sketching. I used a black sketch book with white china marker and white colored pencils for all my sketches while in London. Overall, I’m satisfied with how this type of media turned out.
Wow, today was an extremely tight day. There was not much time to do to much today. Our tour at Westminster Abbey started off with a ten minute sketch but felt more like three. After the tour we had to do another sketch and go find something to eat. Without missing the boat ride. Greenwich was just the same. The places we visited all had a max time of ten minutes. Then we had to hurry to the firm my group went to which was SOM. After which we hurried to our pub to get supper. The night finished with Shelby and I running to Adidas to buy some soccer items and rushing back so he did not miss the this to Bedzed. What a day !
