There, and back again

Two more airplane sketches, flying to and from Portugal (sketches from Lisbon and Sintra to follow…).

LisbonOn the first flight I had an aisle seat and drew shoes, the strong perspective and my hands sketching.

Returning home I had the middle seat so focussed on my table contents instead. This sketch started a conversation with my neighbour in the window seat about creativity and learning (don’t forget to play the flute Kate!), and I ended up doing a quick drawing of her delightful baby Henry just before we landed. I love the way that public sketching opens up these chance encounters. The ink blots on the iPod were the result of cabin pressure on the water-brush.
