Scratching An Itch

25 Nov


Husb and I spent the evening at a very useful ‘Make And Market’ event at the new Galerie Simpson on Swansea’s High Street. We had 4 very interesting speakers, two visual artists and two creative IT people, and networking over fabulous nibbles afterwards.

The gallery has only been open a couple of months but has already brought new artists, ideas and events into the artscene. Of course, I had to scribble. It’s like scratching an itch, I can’t help myself!

It’s not easy drawing people who are moving and talking. All I can do is get an approximation of a likeness, just a general type, but it’s good practice and makes a change from working with professional models who hold a pose for as long as you like.

Drawn into my A5 Tate Gallery sketchbook with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen size F.
