Apologies for the lack of recent posts, all was put on hold due to an unplanned trip to hospital. I’m out now, thoroughly resting and with enough time and energy to post the sketches I made during all the empty hours in hospital… First there’s my room, sketched under the influence of Paul Heaston, who’s posted a fascinating short film about the science of wide-angle sketching. Then a self-portrait with IV drip (slightly backed up with blood, which is apparently quite normal, but I didn’t know this, hence the concerned expression). Then a series of quick sketches done in A and E while I was waiting to be admitted. Many thanks to the staff at the RUH who were lovely throughout my stay. All the sketches were done in pencil and watercolour; the Lexington grey fast continues. Now I need to get back into the ink-brush habit ahead of my demonstration in Manchester!
4B Grafwood pencil, water-colour, A5 – times hard to judge due to medication, sleep-loss etc!
