Hospital visit

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!

    Oh dear. Hope nothing was seriously wrong. It is a good sign that you were strong enough to draw, I think. Actually, I think this is a great collection of sketches! 🙂

    Love Paul’s distortions, I’ve tried it a bit too! Glad your fine … I won’t be in Manchester … are you still planning to hold your talk?

      Still planning to do the lectures and the brush pen demos. And I’m doing Paul’s workshop, so more curvy lines to come… Sorry not to see you in Manchester.

    Sorry to hear you’ve been under the weather Ed – looks like your drawing was on form anyway! Like the curvy perspective in the top sketch! See you in Manchester!
