Skating in the Square

Tucked away in Islington, North London are little communal areas of green surrounded by beautiful terraced houses. On a particularly cold sketching day Jenni imagined one such place transformed into an ice rink full of people whizzing and sliding. Wrapped up in woollen scarves and patterned jumpers, kids lead nervous parents around, parents lead excited kids around, someone bails into a bush and a couple recreate the scene from a famous movie. Twinkly lights adorn the bushes and as dusk falls the promise of festivities fills the air.
