London Plane


The Bayswater end of Kensington Gardens has a natural, heathy look to it these days; it was more closely mown during my student days in the 1970s.

We walk around the Round Pond and find a bench where I draw this London Plane. It's good to see so many people enjoying the park.

Beyond the plane tree there's a path going across which gives me a chance to try sketching some of the strollers as they go by. It's a ruch even to make such a brief note as this and I memorise the colours because I think that even the most rudimentary record of the colour adds a lot of information to the sketch.

The young boy his bicycle was just too quick for me. Next Page
