Drawings of sunsets are hardly original, but it’s mine and I enjoyed creating it.
This is my first drawing of my new neighbourhood, Brockley in south London. It took two months to draw. It’s an iPad drawing of New Cross Gate station, which is just a few minutes walk away from my new flat (rented, of course, who can afford to buy in London?!). It was the spectacular autumn sunset and the giant conifer tree on the other side of the railway tracks that caught my eye whilst I looked over a bridge. As I looked more closely, the weeds and ruined brickwork of the older part of the station really interested me, especially its contrast to the modern and much more well cared for new building and platforms further ahead.
