Lots of buskers

Lots of buskers, mostly in Bath, and some of their audiences (ranging from the totally disinterested to the partially engaged). There’s a few more sketches of barefoot Ben Powell, a bottle-neck slide cigar-box guitar player, and a couple who were accompanying Morris Dancers looming like giants over a very fast sketch of Saturday crowds on Milsom Street. These sketches are all brush-pen, apart from one using the trusty Lamy Safari. If only I could combine the precise clarity of pen, with the loose liveliness and speed of an ink-brush. Darker, fuller (go-go dancers!) strength Lexington grey could be the answer…

    Barefoot guy! We saw/listened to him this summer, he was playing in front of the bath house and we were at the restaurant across the street! So little time in Bath, so much to see. You really live in a wonderful, special place!
