Drawing Through A Window Darkly

26 Nov

Sketch in ink and conte crayon.

I always carry a sketchbook and I’m ready to take any opportunity for a quick sketch. I was sitting in a restaurant in Berlin with a group of artists a couple of winters back. It was freezing – literally 20C, and we were eating, drinking and chatting. Jane was gazing out the window into the darkness with her brown handbag on the sill. It’s always a challenge to draw the dark, especially through the reflections of a window, but Jane was deep in thought and stayed still until I finished.

Faber Castell Pitt pens and sanguine conte crayon into a spiral bound A6 sketchbook.
