The last day in London was quite emotional and hectic. We began the day with some perspective drawings around Hoxton Square and moved to the Old Spitalfields market where caught the heaviest rain I've ever experienced in London. It was very beautiful and very dense. After the long walk around Shoreditch with the sketchbooks, we went back to the foundation where we prepared for our crit. It was very good to see what everybody has been up to for a week and how much we have developed and learned. The night finished with a celebratory dinner party at the nearest pizza place which unfortunately I couldn't attend. The day after we were off to Scotland.
We spent a few hours around the BRE Innovation Park where we visited Prince's Natural House. Some of the stuff was impressive, others less. The Prince's Natural House was my favourite of all, although some of them have way much modern look but the Prince's one seemed to me to be the most energy efficient and innovative. I quite enjoyed my time inside as it was a hot day and we were all looking for a place to hide away from the sun rays.
The third day continued with some more basic structures and we got introduced into perspective drawing with Lucien Steil who was incredible pleasure and fun to work with. We drew a few details as well as some streets-cape elements around Shoreditch, close to where the foundation is located. Working with such talented and energetic people was just effortless and very interesting. They made us fall in love with their subjects easily and we did so.
