Sketch in pen and crayon of Nelson's column in central London

Posted On: Wednesday 25th April 2012
Summary: Still raining, this sketch is a bit closer to Trafalgar Square in London and shows Nelson's column in the background and the portico to St. Martin in the Fields to the left.

There was little colour apart from the bright red stop lights on cars, London buses and a typical public telephone box. Can't wait to translate this into an oil or oil pastel painting.
