Absence makes the heart grow fonder...
...unless you are a lazy blogger, in which case 'out of sight, out of mind' applies! In the absence of any new drawings I'm posting a recent one because I was invited to submit a self portrait to a great new blog, created by Deborah Ross, called Artists Paint Themselves.
There will be a new drawing here soon. Inspiration has been a bit low of late but I had a flash of inspiration during the week and I've got three drawings lined up of one person. You might say it's unusual choice for me too. I'll take some work in progress photos and post those over at my drawing blog when the first one is completed.
However, I've got a trip to London next week which may mean I won't have time to post any drawings before I go. I'm going to see my mother in hospital as she hasn't been doing too well recently.
And last but not least, Bonny has been visiting Geneva this week, her first stop on a European tour, and we managed to meet up despite her having broken a leg and travelling with a cast! She very generously gave me this book -
and I swear she must have read my mind! I haven't been coveting any books in the last couple of months (unusually for me) until I saw this reviewed on Katherine Tyrrell's new blog, Making a Mark Reviews , last week. (Again, a really excellent blog, but that will be stating the obvious if you're already reading Making a Mark.) Anyway, it's a rare book in that it's written by an author who generously shares all she knows and provides you with practical information and not just eye candy, although there is plenty of that too!
