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.
