Sit in a field of buttercups and enjoy the moment is one of the best things to do at this time of the year in Britain.
Whenever I have a visiter in Cambridge, I always take him or her to Grantchester. The walk can really tell you what I love about England.
And this time, I finally visited Hampstead Heath, too. I had been wanting to visit there because of the paintings by Constable, Turner and other famous painters. A Japanese writer, Soseki Natsume, is said to have often walked in the park when he was in London in early 20th century.
I could see the top of the Gherkin from there.
While I was in London, I visited the Ravilious exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery with my friends. It was really inspiring! The show was mostly about his watercolour works. But I though I could tell that he was sort of thinking in a printmaker's way. He applies colours as layers. And the use of hatching in watercolour really makes his works unique. I secretly tried watercolour hatching in the sketch above...I need to practice a lot to get neat parallel lines.
