January's Art in the Park outing was to the ice rink at Canary Wharf. We saw and drew schoolchildren wearing 'high vis' jackets pushing other children on sledges, some rather good office workers skating in their lunch hour and some skating novices who had a few bumps. The Christmas lights still sparkled on the trees against the backdrop of the tall buildings surrounding Canada Square.
Our small group of four artists took refuge from the cold weather in The Tasting Room, the pop-up pub that is on site, which proved to be a quiet and friendly location with good views - in fact we doubled their custom. A good day out for the intrepid Art in the Park sketchers.
