In the mood of late for sketching as haven't done any paintings for a while. Will have to knuckle down though as the opera festival is fast approaching. Maybe you might get down for a visit during it and we could view the exhibitions and have a pint or two of course. Festival runs from Oct.19th. to Nov.4th.inclusive.
