Waiting for the figure skaters

Having the Olympic Winter Games in Canada is a bit troublesome time-wise when you live in Denmark. For inscrutable reasons Danish television is almost exclusively transmitting directly from the games, which means that all the figure skating has been on between 2 and 4 AM – pretty tough for someone who wants to watch, but also has a life!

My girls and I have made valiant efforts to watch just a few hours of the figure skating competitions. This is a sketchbook journal entry made to pass the time until the skaters came on – ink pen and watercolour wash, brush pen markers and coloured pencil.

Hope the rest of the world is having better luck getting to watch their favourite winter sports!
