Lord Kensington

Here @ Kensington we are proud of our rich history and heritage that stands the test of time from generation to generation.  Kensington was originally founded by The Honourable William Edwardes Kensington the 4th, also known as the Baron of Kensington or Lord Kensington.   As a very eccentric and avid lock collector, Lord Kensington was a very important figure in the County of Middlesex.   In 1868 he was elected to the House of Commons for Havefordwest, and held the Security Seat until 1872.  Lord Kensington never lost sight for his love of  collecting mid-evil locks, widgets and all sorts of gizmos.   Apart from his political career he also held the honorary post of Chief Lieutenant of Redwood Shire.    In 1873, Lord Kensington invented a mechanical tamper proof, tumbling device for the Earl of Limrick, to lock down his expensive computational instruments and gauges.  He filled for his first patent that very same year and he turned his love of collecting locks into much much more.

Drawing at the Mall

While studying figure drawing my instructor would have us go to the nearby mall and draw people. Each time we had a challenge to draw people at the food court, draw people walking, draw people on the first floor (fore shortening was the toughest), draw people on the escalators, etc. This is one of the best ways to practice and get some pencil mileage and study figure drawing.

On a rainy day like today, nothing like little sketches to keep the imagination flowing…
