The frustration of not getting out
to do all the drawing I need to do for my Horbury 'Sushi'
makes me desperate to draw this evening. But what? I pick up my
sketchbook and art pen, look around and decide I can't do better
than one of the Ikea folding stools that we use as a coffee table.
There's my current Pink Pig sketchbook which I use for the serious
stuff; I'm drawing this in an A5 size book-style sketchbook. It
has thin paper that doesn't take watercolour without cockling and
black ink shows through the page so I'm leaving the reverse side
of each sheet blank and using it just for 'fun' sketches, or sketches
snatched on my errands.
Which are often the best, indeed only, sketches I produce
during the day.
