…can be a pain in the arse for lots of reasons and yesterday I experienced pretty much all of them:
I wanted to draw this woman with a crew cut because I thought it’d be good practice, making her look feminine without the help of a traditionally female hairstyle:Only problem: halfway through a huge group of tourists got on and stood directly between us.
Also, as with the drawing above, you sometimes pick someone to draw and then they decide they’re going to watch you very, very carefully which can be quite off putting. Plus he was massive and I didn’t want to offend him.
And of course the biggest kick in the teeth. Just when I’ve found a really interesting old man to draw, deliberately sat myself opposite too get a good view and waited for him to settle down to his paper…
An old woman gets on with, not one, but TWO walking sticks. And the seat I’ve chosen for my superior view point is the bloody priority seat. So not only did i miss out on drawing him properly but I had to stand all the way home. Rubbish.
I’m going to try and post more regular updates now, 2 or 3 a week hopefully. So, if anyone made it this far, thank you. I hope you enjoyed and they’ll be more on it’s way soon.
(Here’s a drawing of a man that I have no excuse for so couldn’t tie into my rant and will now just tag on to the end of the post:
Hey, at least he looks unhappy. That’s sort of a link right?)
