Fish ‘N’ Chips

17 Dec

Husb took me out to lunch today. Fish and chips in the Windsor Caff. With salt and lashings of vinegar. Lovely. I had a very few minutes to scribble and I drew the lady opposite us.

17 Windsor caff

I’m a bit uncomfortable about drawing people who are out-of-the ordinary, as I don’t want to risk poking fun at them, or be voyeuristic. But on the other hand, I don’t want to censor myself either. I have to try and be honest in what I see and what I draw, that’s all I can do really. I sympathise with people who are very overweight; I’ve battled to keep my weight under control for decades, it’s hard to watch what you eat every day of your life and do your exercises no matter how much you hate doing them. And now it’s Xmas and there’s a plateful of home made mince pies in the kitchen, taunting me. 😡

    Yep…gotta watch what ya eat or you’ll end up looking like the woman you drew, who should be going a lot lighter on the chips.

    thats funny, i had the same internal debate the other day. i had a photo of a large lady sitting in a church pew and was debating wether to censor myself or post it up, but eventually non-censoring won mostly because I wasn’t posting it up with judgement or to point and laugh, its just a photo. Also didn’t think she should be left out just because she was larger than average. But its such a fine line.
