At Leadenhall Market

At Leadenhall Market by Liza Hirst

Before my friend Olha Pryymak suggested painting in the Leadenhall Market, I had never heared of it, so I went there without any expectation whatsoever and was overwhelmed with what awaited me. This arcade was built in the 15th century and is absolutely stunning. Together with Maryam Foroozanfar we had a great afternoon working there side by side and while I was obviously drawn into all the details of its architecture, Olha captured the atmosphere in her painting beautifully. Maryam did a sketch of the lanterns of which unfortuntely I have no picture to show.
