Thirty Minutes

13 Apr


Here’s another of the 30-minute portrait sketches I did yesterday during my drawing day at Swansea Museum. I used Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens into an A5 hardbacked spiral bound sketchbook. I would normally do a number of quick preliminary sketches so it’s quite a challenge to do a decent drawing that is also a reasonable likeness in such a short time. I have another drawing day booked at the museum early in May and I hope to eventually build up a hundred or so of these small portraits over the next few months.

    Rosie I think I am missing something. Are these people coming to sit for you or are you making rapid sketches of people who are just passing?

      Hi Leonie, I arranged with them beforehand as I specifically wanted people of a certain age, but I did the drawing in public so museum visitors could see portrait drawing in action 😊
