    Very nice.
    Girders? More like tangles.

    Off to V+A to tomorrow for smallest person’s tenth birthday. I hope to get some sketches done there too (though I think they literally do have “no sketching” notices up)

    • Have a lovely day. I have the feeling you will challenge those notices!

    • when will museums change that? I go to the Louvre where I can’t even sketch statues, but people have video cameras… they must be worried about adding “moustaches” to the artwork

        I think it’s so we don’t impede the flow of paying traffic. I think you can sketch in the rest of the museum. But there is this thing about privately owned space. The centre of the city I live in enforces a no sketching rule, and I have heard people be moved on by security guards. Of course now it’s privately owned, not our public space anymore.

        • I’ve just googled that story. Drawers asked to contact management first, have they got a typed up list of ne’r-do-wells that they have to check first?

            It’s one of our local urban sketchers who tweaks their tails. He is passionate about urban sketching and seems quite feisty when challenged. I’ve not had a chance to do this myself. Public access to land was established by mass trespass. Perhaps sketching will become a revolutionary movement. I have an instinctive dislike of asking permission being the default setting for citizenship.

  3. the middle image is so powerful
