My favourite places in London

I have been a Londoner for over 20 years now. I love London with all my heart and feel completely at home here. Dr Johnson said 'If you are tired of London, you are tired of life.'

In this city there is always something to discover. I sometimes take a bus to the center (I prefer it to the underground trains) and just walk and soak up the atmosphere.

This is Cecil Court, London WC2, close to Covent Garden. It is a very narrow pedestrian street full of antique bookshops. Here are some of the shop windows:

My favorite shops are the ones selling children's books. I love looking at the old illustrations
and book covers.

I take my sketchbook with me and work, getting ideas for new paintings or just feeding my eyes.
