Regular readers of these pages (should such a person exist) will know that we were thrilled to find on display a marvellous painting of our Helter Skelter as it stood in Hyde Park for the Royal Wedding last year. Now we have another artist who has taken time to sketch our attractions, this time in Roundwood Park.
Pippa Ridley’s website (www.pipparidley.com) records her as saying:
I was born in the Caribbean and pursued my secondary education in the UK after winning an art scholarship. I went on to The Slade School of Fine Art, University College London to study for a BA in Fine Arts. Following this I studied at The Prince’s Drawing School in London.
We say these sketches of our Simpson Slide, Carousel and Jets Ride (the latter two appearing soon in Winter Wonderland) show the thrills and spills of our super attractions and the enjoyment of the users. Come and seek for yourself, but unless you have Pippa’s talent, no need to bring a sketch book!
