Park Bench Sketch
If you’re all bent out of shape for one reason or another, an hour sketching in the park, under the bright light of the spring sun with the green grass glinting and the cherry blossoms bouncing in the breeze – all this will sort you out.
Here is half of the sketch I did this morning in just such circumstances. I was going to call it Bent Out of Shape, but why dwell on the negative? Thank goodness for the beautiful parks of London. I didn’t have any soft willow charcoal with me, so I used a hard charcoal pencil and a blue chalk.
