Sneaky Scribbling

13 Jun

I was at a meeting yesterday and while I was concentrating [honest!] I snuck my sketchbook out and scribbled away under the table for a few minutes. I like doing these very quick, surreptitious little portraits because it forces you to identify and capture what it’s absolutely vital to record because you don’t have the time to do anything else. People tend to be talking and fidgeting as well, so it’s very good discipline to draw quickly and make allowances for a moving model. Excellent opportunity to practice.

Drawn in Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen size S into my Paperblanks A6 ‘Mediterranean Cats’ sketchbook. I’ve nearly finished it – I had it for Xmas and it’s lasted 6 months, good value. It’s a very pretty object in it’s own right as well. I’ll miss it.
