  1. London: St. Paul’s Cathedral (Interior)

    29 Jul 2017
    After a full day of traveling around South Bank and checking out Tate Modern I walked to Blackfriars to see St. Paul’s Cathedral. I was initially drawn to it because it’s resemblance to The Capitol Building in DC. I guess that’s the other way around considering the age of the…

  2. London: Hampton Court Palace

    28 Jul 2017
    A lot of planning went into my first trip to London recently but there was room for spontaneity. On a beautiful summer day I went to explore Hampton Court Palace. The palace was where Henry VIII lived. Since the palace was so massive I spent half the day exploring. Construction…

  3. London: Colville Square

    27 Jul 2017
    One day after I saw all of the tourist attractions I wanted to check out in London I decided to do something more low key. I got on the tube and randomly got off at Notting Hill. Since my first few days in London were primarily about getting used to…

  4. London: Amy Winehouse Exhibit

    26 Jul 2017
    An essential stop for me in London was Camden Town. Specifically The Jewish Museum. I already saw the exhibit: Amy Winehouse, A Family Portrait in San Francisco a few years ago. It was important for me to see the one in Camden because that’s one of the places where she lived…

  5. London: The West End

    24 Jul 2017
    One part of London I was curious about was Piccadilly Circus. When I got there (via The London Underground) I felt like I was in familiar territory. The reason for that is Piccadilly Circus to me feels like a less cramped, more open version of Times Square. I generally avoid…

  6. London: Window at St. Margaret’s Church

    22 Jul 2017
    Westminster Abbey was where I went on my third day in London. I didn’t realize how majestic it would be until I walked there from the tube station near Hyde Park. It was very difficult to decide what to paint “live” because of all the beautiful architecture. I wanted to…

  7. London: Tower Bridge iPad Painting

    21 Jul 2017
    I arrived in London without much sleep due to various delays LaGuardia Airport. I dropped everything off at where I was staying in Abbey Wood before heading back to Central London. The tube is very similar to New York’s subway system so I acclimated to getting around quickly. My central…

    As my friends know I’ve been talking about a vacation in Europe for a long time. This summer I’m finally going. My travel partner will be the new iPad Pro 10.5 and Apple Pencil. I can’t wait to illustrate all of the food, architecture and sights I find. I will…
