PORTOBELLO ROAD, LONDON, SKETCHES IN JULY

I was on the Sketch Crawl on Saturday, 12 July, organised by the Meet Up Group Drawing London on Location.

It was very hot and crowded!

The crowds were more than I had expected, in fact it was rather like the masses of people who come to the Notting Hill Carnival.

There were a lot of us sketchers and we were dotted around the area, mostly sitting on sketching stools or on the ground. It is tiring work.

I particularly liked the view of the market from Denbigh Close, where there was a stall selling Paddington Bears, and a couple of Wombles on the top shelf!

Do you remember Wombles?
