Sketching in the rain at London Fields Lido

Two intrepid artists braved the torrential rain today to sketch at London Fields Lido, the open-air, heated Olympic sized swimming pool in Hackney. A tarpaulin provided some cover from the endless rain but some water inevitably ended up on the sketch books adding a random quality to the finished results.

After about an hour and a half our two artists withdrew to the nearby E5 Bakery café for a warming bowl of soup and the conversation turned to possible future outings to the Velopark and the Aquacentre, both at the Queen Elizabeth Park.
