The thoughts and works of a caffeine addicted artist!

Doddington hospital sits approximately a mile and a half away from me and is on route to Harry's school, so I decided to make use of their kiosk in reception and grab a coffee on my way home, hoping to catch some free models. It turned out to be quite the challenge. On entering the hospital doors, patients visit the reception desk simply to 'check in' before heading off in the direction of their appointment waiting room giving me just seconds to capture them in ink. I enjoyed the challenge and intend making this venue a regular haunt through this year, I'm pleased to know that my frequent coffee purchases will also help out the kiosk. With such little time on each subject, it was impossible to focus on features but great practice for proportion, character and 'feature gesturing'...which is something I find challenging and one of the main reasons for my focus this year; putting a likeness into a rather small area in just a couple of inked marks is something I hope to improve at.
