Some Days You Can’t

I try to blog every day but now and again, not often, I’m just too shattered to do a drawing and write up a blog. Yesterday was one of those days. I’m a bit gutted because I haven’t had a day off blogging since the middle of December, but last night I just couldn’t get it together at all. I had a couple of spare drawings as well, but I just had to crawl off to bed, too tired to think. Maybe it’s the clocks going forward!

Never mind, back on form today. Husb and I went to see a new show of painting at The Artswing at Swansea’s Grand Theatre and then nipped to our excellent local pub, The Brunswick, for a swift apple juice and a scribble. Pubs and cafes are great places for sketching faces, these three are very distinctive. I used a dark grey graphite stick into my A5 hardbacked sketchbook.

    We forgive you! Gosh, don’t apologise, I am impressed that you’ve kept it up so long. I agree with Mrs Daffodil – I think the gent in the upper right also has a fleeting resemblance to Alfred Hitchcock.

      haha Thanks 🙂 He does look a bit like old Hitchcock, although I didn’t leave myself enough room to draw his rather lush head of curly grey hair. Pity.

        That would definitely have changed the Hitchcockian impression.

      Yes, it spiralled up on top of a very high forehead, a bit like an icecream I’ll just have to go back to the pub to see if I can find him again. Oh dear 😉

    I especially like the fellow in the upper right hand corner. He looks like he’s about to pronounce judgement on someone or something.

      He had one of those faces, quite imposing. Great to draw. In fact, it’s easier to draw people with such extreme features.
