I recently finished working at a studio in Baker St. It's an interesting part of London & at lunch times I would go on the trail of Sherlock Holmes. There's a statue of the famous fictional detective outside Baker St. tube station. 221 b Baker St. is the address that Arthur Conan Doyle gave Holmes in the books. On this site now stands the Sherlock Holmes Museum.
The museum has been made to look like Holmes & Watson actually lived there. Holmes' study is full of items that fans will recognize from the stories, including Holmes' crack pipe!
Last year one of the Eurovision Art Challenge themes was 'Elementary dear Watson'. Here's the development sketches of my image.
Not far from Baker St. is the Wallace Collection. They have Fragonard's 'Swing' & Frans Hal's 'Laughing Cavalier'. I spent a lunch-break drawing the armour collection. The Persian & Indian armour, helmets & weapons are really cool.
