Thursday started with the arrival of my dear friend Joan, just back from her 5 week visit to Africa. After much chatter and 'show and tell' we headed to the studio and while Joan painted I created another 10 minute self portrait from life in ink.
I sketched my way through seven pages of my Seawhite sketchbook and found each and every one a challenge. For the first time in a long time I felt I couldn't get a thing right!
I found it hard to decide what to sketch, what to use to sketch ...but I persisted and worked through it.
The results are pretty bland and in most cases I have been most unfair to the subject, albeit unintentional.
