Wishing all regular readers of Travels with a Sketchbook

I've been saving these up since the beginning of the month when we visited the museums in south Kensington with London Urban Sketchers!

Note the novice skaters clinging to the edge in the background.  The children had penguins to cling on to as they skated around - they seemed to work very well

  1. A smile in my heart, Merry Christmas. I've always imagined that a sketch of skaters for Christmas could be done but never imagined how anyone could do it and actually bring it alive. You have done it for me. Thank you for sharing this. I am enjoying it completely.

  2. You just sketch then one at a time - while all the others move around! :)
