westminster abbey sketched at nightAfter painting the Houses of Parliament in watercolour as the daylight faded away, I walked across Westiminster Bridge to do a night time sketch in pencil of Westminster Abbey with Big Ben in the background. 

This was done in a Moleskine notebook, spread across two pages.

After this we walked over to Leicester Square to meet other members of my family for a meal. Arrived back in Cambridge in the wee hours after an exhausting but artistically stimulating day spent painting and sketching in London.
