Bambis Bowling

8 Aug

Have some young relatives from abroad staying this week and it’s a bit hard to find time to draw when you’re entertaining and feeding sturdy, growing teenagers, so I fitted in some scribbling during a family bowling evening. I noticed that people generally stand where they are for a while to watch their bowling ball make its way down the aisle. And everyone has a different way of standing. So it was a great opportunity to practice some speed sketching and analyse different stances. The adult is sturdy, but the adolescents have impossibly skinny legs, like Bambi, which bend at odd angles. Each figure is a composite, sketched many times in between the bowling bouts. I lost. By a mile 😦
