Gallery Time!

Went back to Trafalgar Square - notably The National Gallery this time. I love these galleries! They will be sorely missed when I'm back at Uni.
Tried drawing a 'classic' from the comfort of a bench (cue crowds of guided tours to talk about malicious suffragette behaviour and more :/)

Also ventured into the crypt-like halls that make up ...Room A... open for 3.5 hours a week and full of old, fragile painting. Found a few that caught my eye.
