Well, actually it’s mainly overdue and one of the lamest pieces of drawing I have produced in several weeks, but in the interests of attempting to retain my seat on the Illustration Friday train (head, hands, feet and all other extremities inside the carriage at all times, if you don’t mind…), I thought I’d post this for last week’s topic, lush, anyway (a quick scan of the topic submissions reveals that there are, thankfully, more than a handful of kindred spirits out there with a similarly wine-based take on the theme. Don’t judge, people…): And, just because I feel rather wincingly ashamed of this offering – and because opportunities for casual sketching have been slightly limited this week by a current commission (which I hope to be able to share next week, subject to obtaining the commissioner’s permission) I thought I’d throw in a couple of other sketches I did on the previous week’s ‘rescue’ topic:
While the glorious, sunny weather has been utterly brilliant – and catapulted me back to the blue-skied, tarmac-bubbling summers of my conservatively-spent youth – it has been singularly distracting and has played merry havoc with my watercolour painting, so I’m afraid I have to confess that little part of me is quite thankful for today’s decidedly grey outlook…
‘Til next time, have a great weekend!!
