Merry Old England - Here I Come!!!

7:49 AM

There's one! A red phone booth! I've always wanted to see one–in England!!* And here I am!* I was riding on the top of a double-decker bus (which I'm going to sketch next) and there was a delay. So I started sketching.....and then we started to move and I wasn't finished [with the sketch], so as we traveled around I would draw from different phone booths. This one's a little wonky, but what fun!! Of course, I had to take the tour again to see what I missed the first time around!

I had to wait to paint this until I was off the bus- too wild of a ride to paint! So much fun, and a great way to see an area! I sat at a corner pub-like place to get some color on this.

Spring is in the air over here* even though it is still quite brisk and down-right cold at night! 

Now I need to go find one of those buses to sketch - I wonder if they'll hold still until I get my sketch complete........

*I'm not really in Merry Old England - I"m on "An Imaginary Trip to England!!" This "trip" will be leaving on Monday, April 5th! I hope you can join me for the fun!! Please click here for more information!

  1. Bon Voyage! I won't be able to make it to England this time [just getting back from the (Imaginary Trip to the)Beach!], but hope it's a wonderful trip!

  2. You make it sound so real. Hope you get lots of takers.

  3. What a fun idea and a great job on the phone booth too. Enjoy your "tripping".

  4. I love those phone booths. You did a great job on it. How fun to take trips virtually.

  5. ....I just made my reservations and am looking forward to visiting England!! Will we be painting a teapot or teacup? I love fancy, shmancy, flowered English Bone China tea cups! :-)

  6. This looks and sounds like a real travel page. Bon Voyage.

  7. Ah, yes.. the red phone booths! I still like the looks of them after all these years!

    When I was a young teen (12, 13, 14?) I remember the double decker buses were open on the top level (not all of them... some were). Us neighborhood kids would scrounge up some change, hop on a bus - top story of course - and ride down to the local theater ("theatre" if you're English) and for the equivalent of a quarter we'd watch the Saturday Afternoon Matinee. Ah, yes, Flash Gordon and other heroes of the day! LOL!
