I was commissioned via London Urban Sketchers to paint a drawing for the cover of a Cambridge Undergraduate's Dissertation on the Memorial in Hyde Park to the victims of the 7/7 Bombings. There was a deadline. Fortunately the only day I could go was fine and sunny which generated strong shadows. It turned out to be a tough assignment taking several hours - however I watched the shadows move round which was fascinating - as was seeing how different persons interacted with it. Accuracy was obviously required but my lose/free style was liked/wanted so somehow it was necessary to get into it the solemnity as well as that life goes on....
