Watching the Comet. Pen and watercolour drawing over pencil. A crowd is watching the comet from the City rooftops. Hawksmoor church can be seen in the background. The scene shows groups of people straining at every window and rooftop. Slightly titilating as women crane out of their windows with their breasts exposed, men with their phallic telescopes poiting skyward, and buxom women sit on men's laps to get the best angled view.
