Mostly absent


Lexington grey in fountain pen and  water-brush, white gelly Roll pen, and white Uni Posca brush pen , A6 – 5 minutes

A very quick sketch in a Bath cafe of someone who seemed to be mostly somewhere else, focussed on looking at photos on a lap-top and listening to music. I was partly somewhere else, absorbed in translating the 3D scene in front of me into line and shade on blue paper. At the moment I’m almost entirely somewhere else, writing about a 2D representation of a brief moment that happened several weeks ago in a different place.

I’m fairly sure that sketching has made me more aware of the places I am in, when I’m actually sketching; but blogging about it is a different matter…
