The Cheesegrater and friends

 Pencil. 149 x 210 mm Evelyn Rowland
with Yves Damin from Paris USk at St Gabriel Wharf 27/12/13

A very small sketchcrawl at very short notice and I only made it to the second half! The rain stopped and the wind subsided so despite it being pretty nippy out, I managed a couple of drawings  and a coffee in three hours.

Posh Banger Boys in SE1

Pencil and watercolour 210 x 149 mm Evelyn Rowland

A very pleasant afternoon at an impromptu pop up sketch session courtesy of James Hobbs. This is number 8 Stoney Street; a  takeaway on the ground floor. I got enticed by a few random chimney pots, window frames and brick arches over the first floor windows. The actual shop part is not quite as romantic as the rest of the building suggests. 

I went back during the week for another go. It was supposed to be a simple little drawing with some nice brick work. Again I learn that the simplest ideas are often the hardest ones to get down.
