Stoke Newington: Albion road

This is Albion road in Stoke Newington, one of the London suburbs.
It's the part of town where my daughter Rianne lives presently. I was waiting there for the night bus N73, in order to return home.
In my eyes it's a typical London suburban street, with rows of small colourful shops mostly run by Pakistan, Turkish or Chinese shopkeepers. London must be one of the most multicultural cities I've ever visited.

Nice sketch, Rene. It does convey a sense of London with the narrow-ish streets and multi-storied shop buildings. I guess that you must have had a long wait for the bus; great use of your time!

Thanks Michael, it was very early, and I missed the bus I intended to by a hair, the next one would arrive in about 20 minutes. Enough for the drawing, but I couldn't finish the painting by then, added some shades the next day at home.
