    …it doesn’t work, they just regather immediately.
    Wonderful energy in your lines these days. (K)

    • I’m enjoying this sketching and they are making a little aide memoire to times and places that otherwise might not have stuck in the memory. The people sitting sketches will always be associated with the homeless man shouting at the pigeons until a passer by engaged him in conversation and he calmed down. Also the bramble that kept catching in my hair when I moved up on the bench to make room for someone else!

    Hi OA
    Shouting at pigeons. I still don’t get it. Googled in case it’s lyrics of something I should know but all I turned up was a young mans new WP political blog.
    Cool sketches as always. The second down suddenly lakes on new scale as I see the small parked vans. The sixth, the tree, feels like where I am at in my drawing too – it caught my eye right away.

    • Oh no, I feel bad now – all that research -in the lower pictures there was just someone shouting at pigeons! I quite like the group of three figures who were choosing an icecream from the van in the picture you mention. I think they were crossing their arms to hide how eager they were. I’m into my sketching at the moment – less urban more suburban or graveyard. Hope you are well. OA

  4. Thank you Ted. It never feels like it’s going well at the time so that’s heartening to hear!
