Chez Michelle


Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week. With a focus on London at the moment with the Olympic opening ceremony starting in a few hours I thought I'd share a pen, watercolour and pencil sketch of a little flower shop in the architecture of the railway bridges around Borough Market in Southwark, London. It's a very atmospheric area and Borough Market is full of life and colour. Hope you enjoy the games opening ceremony if you're watching.

As you said, very atmospheric and a gorgeous picture. I was at a wedding yesterday so missed seeing the opening ceremony but I am sure it was spectacular. Have a great weekend, Chris.

Packin???? Humph!!! not even started yet hahaha. It'll be a mad scramble in the mornin!
Had a scroll down and a catch up at your amazing work!! I've missed the inspiration (totally my fault for not hopping over) Your sketching/painting/colouring/creating simply blows me away.
Lotsa hugs

Hi Chris!
Oh so beautiful. This must have taken a month of Sundays to do. Doug wanted to know how you did the brick work? He loves art and is quite good at drawing too. I think you painstakingly sat and drew every brick!! Did you do it from memory or take a photo? So many questions.
I have been watching the Olympics. The opening ceremony was quite impressive. Love it. a lot of late nights coming up.
Hugs Maz
