A Milestone Reached

5 Apr

favourite man


Had another busy day with the opening of PROCESS, the new exhibition from 15 Hundred Lives, the art collective I’m a member of, at Swansea Museum. Afterwards, Husb and I went to our favourite Chinese restaurant, called Favourite funnily enough, and tucked into a gorgeous authentic meal.They make these lovely tofu balls, crispy on the outside and doughy in the middle. We tried a new dessert, Tang Yuan, little sweet steamed buns that exploded with a gooey sesame sauce in your mouth.

I sketched this chap surreptitiously. I rarely get the chance to draw someone of this size and it was difficult to get the proportions right. I should have made the head deeper and put the ear much further back on the head. Never mind, it’s all about practice and learning. I used a soft grey graphite stick into my A5 hardbacked sketchbook.

Oh and by the way, I posted blog number 1300 yesterday. That’s one heck of a lot of drawings done and published. I’m chuffed 😀

    1300! Wow! well done you! Lovely sketch, though your subject should probably not try the new desert too! 😉

    Love this drawing! You may see inaccuracies, but it really works to someone who hasn’t seen this gentleman!

      Thank you. It’s always the same with us artists though, never satisfied 😀

    Well done you! And apart from your milestone this is a great surreptitious drawing.
