The Carousel

Happy new year everyone.

Here's my first drawing of 2013. It is the carousel which comes to York at Christmas. The drawing was done while leaning on a nearby column, it was such a cold day that after half an hour my fingers had set in the pencil-holding position. Afterwards I went to Costa to thaw and 'play with my felt tips',  to colour the picture up. At home it was finished with watercolour and Neocolor I crayon.  The drawing measures 50x20cm and is on Khadi paper sketchbook (as usual).
I think there's a lot of mileage in this picture, at least one print and some extra drawings.
