Scribbling Overlay

9 Jul


Husb was hoovering around the house so I followed him with my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8, scribbling with the free Markers app.

He moves fast when he’s doing housework so I had to do speed sketches. It’s a bit cumbersome to keep resetting the little computer box to do new drawings and I didn’t want to faff around doing that, so I changed the colour of the line and drew over the top.

My Long Suffering…….

26 Jan

Sketchbook drawing.

Because I sketch so much I’m always looking for things to draw and my poor, long-suffering husband fits the bill a lot of the time. It’s easier for me because wherever we are I can just tell him to keep still ….. and he does! Brilliant. You can’t usually do that with strangers. Here he is on the London underground with someone else’s arm in the foreground. He’s quite tall so when I’m sitting down and he’s standing I get some nice foreshortening out of him as well. I think of it as one of his marital duties 🙂

I understand that Lucien Freud exploited his family for his art too, so I’m in good company. This is drawn in Faber Castell Pitt pen into an A6 sketchbook.
