Scottish Parliament Lobby 4th February 2014

I’m not, I just sat down to sketch this interesting lobby when they began turning up, so I am happy to draw them instead.Scottish Parliament 4 February 2014 The space could feel like a theatre lobby or an airport departure lounge, but it doesn’t, it has a different atmosphere.
