A self portrait in a little mirror. I like being a bit unflattering with myself. No hairbrush, early night or shave for me. The eye is closed as the mirror was so near the two eyes were giving differnet views. Made while waiting for my youngest to do his homework…Some nice flowers, the sketch I had just made, a glass of water and my son’s arm. Still doing his homework.
My niece is in a fantastic group of musicians called Quintetta. They were playing a lunchtime concert in a beautiful Wren designed Church, St. Stephen Walbrook’s in the City of London. Really well played and arranged. There was also an exhibition of Francis Bacon works in the church! These Bacon drawings are contested but not bad (the signatures are rather large…). http://www.francisbaconcollection.com/
Here’s a close up.
Here’s some sketches made on a weekend away with my trusty Palimino Blackwing pencil.
I’m happy now that people do not stand still for me. Just put down what you see infront of you.
On the ferry from the Isle of Wight…
In a treehouse waiting for pizza to cook…
Waiting for the roast potatoes.
Waiting for the Isle of Wight ferry to take us back to the mainland.
Lastly, I do like photographing work at unusual angles.
