Lis Watson was inspired to get back into drawing after a conversation with some old art college friends outside the Royal Festival Hall last year. She decided to publish her sketches online, as a way of ensuring she kept up with it.

We stumbled across her sketches from the summer of London 2012 and loved them. On a day that's wet and grey, it's delightful to look back on scenes from the Jubilee and relive crowds enjoying Olympic events.

Browse more of Lis' online sketchbook which includes lots of London interest.
