Olympic Ice Gold

Hello! Day 7 was unique for British sports fans. On St Valentine’s Day 1984, the Gold Medal for Ice Dance was won by Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean. 30 years on, also on St Valentine’s Day, the Gold Medal for Women’s Skeleton was won by Elizabeth Yarnold. Both events breathtaking and both brilliant. Amazing achievements that we’ll remember here for a long time to come. Here are my drawings:

Bolero!

Hola! Music and dance are a great source of inspiration. I’m fascinated by orchestras, bands and dancers and the way they work together. There was an exciting development at the Proms, where the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra were joined on stage by the Antonio Marquez Dance Company. They worked brilliantly together. The climax of the concert was the mesmeric Bolero by Ravel, with added flamenco rhythms. Wonderful! Here are my drawings:
