In the hood

 Had a chance to draw a street artist at work in Penge yesterday.


Difficult as the painting is very physical and they are up and down their ladder.

Managed a quick sketch of the artist @illuzina when she took a rest to check her 'phone.

See the finished piece in Maple Road, Penge, London.

So Last Century June Vintage Fair





Went along to the 'So Last Century' vintage fair today to do some sketching.  Lots of rails of clothes and hats.
Music was vintage too, with 78 records on wind up gramophones! Also some fold-up garden chairs and garden pots which looked lovely planted with cottage garden flowers.
