On the spur of the moment I went into London to go to the Art Car Boot Fair, thinking I could sketch wacky looking artists and art buyers. I had no idea what a heaving mass of humanity the area around Brick Lane now is on a Sunday. It was very difficult to find the fair amongst everything else that was going on. When I eventually did, I have to say in the words of Sir Alan Sugar, most of it was a disappointing pile of tut. The crowds everywhere made it impossible to find a quiet corner to sketch, so I eventually retreated and had a cup of coffee near Liverpool Street Station, where I had a good view of Christ Church, Spitalfields.
