I walked to The Turks Head Wapping: a restaurant among trees. After a splendid lunch, I sketched the building.
The drawing took me about 50mins on location, pen and ink. I added the colour when I got back to my desk.
The chimneys are Transparent Pyrrol Orange. Other colours are: Green Serpentine Genuine, Mars Yellow, Burnt Umber, Ultramarine Blue, Permanent Yellow Deep, and Perylene Maroon to get the darker tiled walls. The blacks and greys are Ultramarine Blue mixed with Burnt Umber. These are all Daniel Smith watercolours. The paper is Arches Aquarelle 300gsm NOT, in a sketchbook made by the Wyvern Bindery in Hoxton.
Here is work in progress:
This is a wonderful café-restaurant – recommended. It is east of Tower Bridge, about a 45 minute walk from the City.
