I went along to see the ceramic Poppies in the moat, and did a sketch in watercolour and crayon.
The Poppies are placed in remembrance of the 888,246 British and Commonwealth Military dead during the First World War (and that of course does not include all the civilian dead). This sketch is in my Moleskin sketchbook, which holds all my recent drawings as part of my Urban Sketchers London journal.

After drawing the Poppies I walked into Trinity Square Gardens, a nice quite spot with another memorial, this time to the Mariners and Fishermen fatalities during both World Wars; I did another sketch of the green space, with the pigeons and crows, and a few people enjoying the sunshine.
