Sketchy on the Detail

Draw a little every day

Y2D73 and hoydenish

Meet Princess Sophia, Electress of Hanover, aged 17. This saucy little minx kept me company at the National Portrait Gallery whilst I waited for a friend to finish work so we could have a Christmas dinner (but minus the pudding,  brussels sprouts, turkey….okay, we just went for dinner and it was Christmas time….ish).

Back to Sophia. I’m not sure about what she was like in real life, but as busts go, she is the one in the gallery who looks like she would know a good time when she found it. I think I’ll have what she’s having.



Y2D72 and street furniture

Today I had a little wait before meeting my friend; we were going to see Ben Miller in “The Duck House”, which we thoroughly recommend by the way. As said friend was a little late (thank you Transport for London) and it was cold, I sat drawing the lamps, railings and windows from a local coffee shop window.  Always practicing those lines. Do they look straighter to you?
