Fishpool street, St Albans

This is a gorgeous olde-worlde residential road leading to the centre of St Albans. I imagine I will probably go back to draw different parts of it several times for the Urban Sketcher’s blog.

Yes, I am sure you will want to go back Julie. It is a lovely street and you have certainly done it justice.

Do I remember right, Julie, did you once say you had studied architecture? Your buildings and streets are always so charming and-- I don't know the word-- but so in
perspective, and convincing.

Judith it's surprisingly long and the bends mean that tehre are lots of different possible views.

Annie I wish! No I studied graphic design including a foray into scientific illustration.

Really lovely drawing, Julie I'm remembering how much I enjoyed One Mile from Home.

Karen, I'm hoping that these urban sketches are going to be a more urban version of One Mile from Home

The composition of this piece is really nice - it feels like the picture's comfortable on the page if you see what I mean. Love the reflection in the back window of the car, and all the mad little TV aerials :-)
