Nevertheless she persisted...




















I doubt many people still read or keep blogs but I'm persisting...Ever since I did the Jamie Oliver sketch I've been meaning to do something similar. There is something I really enjoy about combining portraits and shapes and colours. This was done in the same 6"x6" 'Seawhite of Brighton' sketchbook. Polychromos and Lyra Rembrandt pencils.

I know what you mean, it s a dying art, at least among artists. But I, for one, am always glad to see that you have posted! Thanks for sharing your wonderful work.

I too persist - both in the keeping of a blog and the reading of them. Other forms that tried to take their place cant hold a candle to them. There is a depth and permanence and ease in following and browsing through them that is missing with Facebook, Instagram and the other quick & slapdash ones. I have always enjoyed your drawings and find they remind me I want to get better at my own efforts. Always happy when I see there's a new post here. Interesting idea to "back" your portraits with not just color but color in a particular shape.
