I did the initial drawing for this in August last year. I felt it wasn't working so left it unfinished. I realised after many months that the problem was a large chunk of the left hand side. I returned to Stratford three times to do redraws. The third time I got it right. It was a relief because i could see the potential in the rest of the composition and didn't want to abandon it.

This is an example of something i've been striving for for a long time. Ever since i started getting seriously into drawing I've had this idea where I draw everything around me. I sort of wrap the drawing around myself. With this scene of Cambridge I did just that. If I had drawn myself in the picture I would be stood on the pavement next to the drainpipe (middle bottom).
Initially the drawing didn't include any people but it needed some to add life. As the subject was Trinity Lane I included the Holy Trinity.
