Watching The Rugby

12 Feb

Ink sketch.

Here’s The Husb indulging one of his favourite pastimes today, lying on the settee watching an international Rugby match on the TV. Of course Wales was playing. And Wales won. So he’s a very, very happy Husb. Final score Wales 27, Scotland 13.  Well played, excellent game, minimal shouting and swearing from the region of the settee.

I stood at the end of the settee to do the drawing, with my Pilot drawing pen, currently my favourite; I’m having a bit of a break from Faber Castell Pitts. It’s in my little cat-themed sketchbook. The foreshortening is good fun, but I don’t think he’s too pleased at the view of his male pattern baldness lol.

    Great angle! Sometimes I want to stand over people in coffee shops but I’m sure it would freak them out.
