Here are a few watercolour and pen commissions I have done over the past year.
Welcome to London
I’m Amanda…I rediscovered art about 5 years ago, a year after being diagnosed with advanced cancer. I love working with watercolour and pen, and my style is more illustrative than painterly. I draw everything and anything. Recently I have got back into digital art, using an iPad Pro. I have an Etsy Shop where I sell small pieces of original art and handmade cards. Note: it is very rare to see a photo of me!
After enjoying our first canal walk a couple of weeks ago, we embarked on a new one yesterday, starting from Camden Road station and following the towpath from Camden Lock Market. We used the Jubilee Greenway route guide from Transport for London (Section 3) as our reference, which takes you through Camden, King’s Cross, Barnsbury, Islington, Hackney and Bethnal Green.
Gosh, it has been absolutely ages since I have written a post on here! I have no excuses, just life! Anyhow, this post is about a trip on Saturday we did to a part of London we had never been to before. The Regent’s Canal Walk, as part of the Jubilee Greenway, takes you through Little Venice, past Regent’s Park and London Zoo, finishing at Camden Town.
Unfortunately, we didn’t quite complete this walk, because one of my sandals started to fall apart as we were going past Regent’s Park, so we did a detour that involved meandering around Primrose Hill, before getting to Chalk Farm tube station to go home.
