F U N N Y | L I F E | D R A W I N G




Drawing from life is a beautiful thing. I requires concentration, patience and a fluent and confident line - and in turn it rewards you with a magical feeling of clarity and ownership: clarity in what you see and how you see it, and a happiness-inducing ownership over the moment and the world around you.

After two years of sketching people in the streets that move annoyingly fast and secretly drawing in cafes and bars whilst trying to look inconspicuous, I have returned to the wonderful activity that is life drawing. Here is a funny one from the latest session - using an 8B graphite pencil that provides an exciting challenge due to sometimes producing unpredictable marks and movements on the paper.
