We’ve been away for the week (I’ll post some seaside sketches soon) and in the meantime a fair’s arrived in Victoria Park for the Easter bank holiday weekend. Here’s the helter skelter, with trees in the background just about to burst into leaf. To get a good view of the full structure I had to sit outside the main fairground, and it’s early evening so not many customers around. Pencil was perfect for this sketch as the curves on the slide were tricky, and much steeper than my first attempts.
I’m an urban sketcher…
