Consumer Heaven

Pretzel Bar Westfield Stratford London. Pencil 297 x 210 mm

I needed to get back to buildings, weird angles and relative proportions. I started this westfield drawing near the Great Eastern Market sign and worked down to the watch surgery, then up the lower ground floor escalators to the Pretzel Bar. I guess I am always on the lookout for the 'human interest story' and here the girl snipping up the pretzels gave me just that. A drawing starts out as a search; and with this one, the thing that mattered most came at the end.
