The first time I attempted to draw London was 2 years ago at the end of March. The wind, hail, sleet and snow prevented me from getting more than a few hastily made sketches, but I took a lot of photographs and got familiar with the city. I returned to London recently to finish the job correctly in April. For my first week, I battled the elements as I sketched and toured the city, warming up inside Nero cafes and wonderful museums. During my last few days sketching I had perfect sunny weather to make some of my best compositions. This latest set of cards has been two years in the making; it is one of my best works.
