lunchtime sketch



I popped down to Greenwich and seeing the Urban Sketchers website put me in mind to do an architectural sketch. I didn't have much time, so I went straight in with pen, and scruffed about a bit to give it more contrast with a fat marker I lifted from chamonkee. It looks more classical than my usual drawing, but I guess the building's partly to blame for that.

Before I cycled home, I nipped into the shop and ran into eruditebaboon and his girlfriend in the checkout queue, just as he was deciding he was surviving enough not to pull a sickie from work today. (Have you seen the brilliant and utterly confusing comic he made yesterday?) Oo, and some lovely photos of the stairway in the library of Brandenburg University, thanks to a link from architect Robert Morrison.

Now I'm back and work and thinking how much I totally, totally miss my sister and can't wait to see her in just over a week. She's a die-hard Dolly Parton fan so I am in a cheesy mood and have this song playing at the moment. I really ought to draw Dolly next. Oh, here's another... and one more.

It DOES look very old-fashioned next to everything else! ;-)

Hello Sarah,

This is very nice. I know it's annoying to ever be compared to an existing or previous illustrator - at least it's not news I welcome - but this has the softness and warmth of an Edward Ardizzoni (spelling?) drawing. I think he's wonderful and I don't mean to detract from it being all yours and from your eye and hand.

Not annoying at all, I think Ardizzone's work's brilliant. Thanks! :-)

a bit classical is good at times! I like this a lot.
I hope you enjoy your holiday, AND draw Dolly!

Thanks! And I will draw Dolly! I did a sketch this morning, but I want to do it better. Her 'n Porter, it's gonna be good, I'm sayin'.
