Urban sketching: Smithfield

15 October 2016

Another day out with the Urban Sketchers London in a new and interesting area, around Smithfield Market.

West Smithfield: Did anyone else see the mendicant squirrels running up to passersby, posing with their paws cupped, begging for food?

Spent two hours here, wondering why there were so many people around here that had Scottish accents... not to mention the Americans in tartan caps. When I'd finished, I realised I'd been sitting next to the William "Braveheart" Wallace memorial.

Newgate Street and Old Bailey: Spent so long drawing determinedly drawing every window that before I knew it, it was 4pm, and I'd missed the end-of-day meetup.

Each: Ink and watercolour in Moleskine watercolour album, 42 x 13cm.
