Band stand

It has suddenly got very hot, about 35 degrees when I went into Victor this afternoon to shop.Met a friend for coffee and walked around the town as I had a shady parking spot, got quite hot and bothered doing it and stood in the shade of a tree with all my shopping around my feet trying to sketch this in a hurry. So it is pretty crappy, somehow I have got the right hand side all wrong, but this is todays contribution, done under extreme pressure.
This is a modern band stand, I think we have had at least 3 goes at something in the same place, at one stage it wasnt even a band stand at all. we used to have the Christmas carols around it with the band in it but we have now gone all commercial and have a large truck on a bigger area of lawn, not nearly such fun.

Well, I think these wonky sort of sketches have lots of character. We've been having hot days too.

They must have been the thing in earlier times. We have a grand one in Johnstone Park near the library. Very hard to draw.
It's gonna be a scorcher today - 38 in the shade and yet Peceli has gone off to play golf!

Yes three cheers for wonky sketches. And well done for struggling on in the heat. The more I see of art on the internet the less I like really photorealistic work. I mean why bother, usually they're precisely copied from a photo, you might as well stick up the photo.
