Pier Head, Liverpool, England, 22nd October 2017 (Drawing 974)
What a beautiful city! Liverpool has many beautiful buildings and fantastic free museums. The place is full of culture as a result, but was devoid of good weather thanks to Storm Brian when I was visiting. This view I drew on my iPhone was from the Museum of Liverpool and it shows […]

Switch House, Tate Modern, London, 19th June 2016
A visit is recommended. After much construction work the impressive new extension to Tate Modern has opened and added a new landmark to London’s skyline. The interior of this twisted brick pyramid is fascinating to explore. On my first visit, I drew what I saw, whilst making my way upwards […]

Grant Thornton House and Euston station, London, 5th February 2016 (Drawing 605)
Euston, you only look good at night.   Euston is an ugly station, but at night it’s transformed.

Houses of Parliament and the River Thames, Albert Embankment, 19th June 2014
Sometimes I have to remind myself London is a great city, despite the expense and insecure tenancies… This was unusual in that it’s drawn from a photograph, which I took earlier the same evening, rather than sketched onsite. The scene was spectacular, like from a painting by Monet. I wanted […]

Nighttime: View from my bedroom, Birmingham, 1st January 2013
iPad drawings This is the view from my old bedroom at my parents’ house. It’s a fairly typical view of suburbia. A small amount of light can make minor elements more prominent at night. The drawings uses several layers, each layer holds certain elements and can have their settings like […]
