And another Baby Boomer. Someone was looking through my Boomer sketchbook yesterday and mentioned that as he turned the pages, it was the eyes that immediately draw the attention. This is why I prefer to draw from life rather than photos, I can see the expressions up close, the real expressions that flicker across a face over a half an hour, rather than the fixed, posed stare of a photograph.
I currently have a solo show of drawings being exhibited at the lovely Workers Gallery in Ynyshir in the Cynon Valley. It’s a nice day out, the area is gorgeous and there are some great drives and walks aroundabouts.
