Friday Links: Silk Road, Sensationalists, Sculptures

An open sketchbook held up in front of the subject on the pages: the ruins of a church overgrown with plants.

Last week I had an artist’s date with myself in London. Did a lot of walking in the City, did some sketching, saw an exhibition of other people’s sketches of London, took myself out to dinner. It was a beautiful sunny day and it was just what I needed to fill the creative well. :-)

The picture shows a sketch I made in St Dunstan in The East. I wasn’t planning on going there but then I found myself there and then I couldn’t not go in because it is such a beautiful spot. :-)

I hope you have an excellent weekend. x Carina
