putney station sketchThis sketch took just a few minutes while waiting at Putney station in London for the train to arrive. We were on our way to watch the London 2012 Marathon. Again, sketching on grey paper, plus a few monocrome crayons allows you to achieve a fair range of values very quickly.

Why neocolour pastels? Well, they're a lot less messy than normal soft pastels, especially if you are carrying them loose in your pocket as I usually do.

This viewpoint appears in a Youtube video I shot about tracking the day at the marathon. It's not about art but your may find it interesting
