Victoria Park Lake People #4

I'm not quite sure why but I last posted sketches of people by the West Lake in Victoria Park in January.

I sketch the people on the terrace by the cafe next to the West Lake in Victoria Park when I stop there for my cup of tea on my morning sketchercise walk.

It rather depends on whether or not I get distracted by the trees or the birds and sketch them instead! I guess the trees and birds got more interesting as the year progressed!

Here are the other three from January this year - when it was very cold. There are fewer people around in January and I always sit inside to sketch - with my hot cup of tea!

The people who gather on this spot are interesting. They often seem to be under the misapprehension that if they you sit outside near a fountain you can't be overheard! While sketching I find I hear snatches of conversations into the sketches without even trying - I often think I ought to try and incorporate some of the words into a sketch.
