Thumbs Up for Harry
Harry & John-Paul on the bus to Cambridge
Both sketches above were created in my altered baby book that Harry gifted me on Mother's Day. The second was sketched on a bus heading into the Grafton Centre. The first time I have ever sketched on a moving bus was yesterday, it gave me a whole new appreciation for those who do it regularly. Apart from being a very poor traveller, unless I am actually driving, the sketchbook moved around so much I thought I would go cross-eyed! It felt like the driver knew what I was trying to do and was having extreme fun making it impossible! The result is far from a sketch and unscanned.

The thumb sketches were created using 3 different coloured pigment liners, all with a 0.1 nib, over a few days...returning and adding to the page as time permitted. Each sketch took around 10-15 mins.
