St James St and National Portrait Gallery
Pencil on Paper
It really is surprisingly difficult just to stand at the side of the road in the middle of London and sketch; it is so different from any other kind of drawing situation with all the noise and distractions going on constantly all around me. I began to feel very self conscious at times, not embarrassed but hyperaware of being a hindrance to other people, worried that cars were going to stop expecting me to cross and such. Once I got more involved in the drawings though I began to ignore any niggling insecurities.
