It was a bit windy today, and with all the debris about made it difficult to get home. I had a wonderful hour and a half bus journey next to a lady who looked like she came straight out of a 1930s film. I wanted to draw her, but didn’t think she would appreciate the reference, so had to settle for surreptitiously studying her for later records, what I now call ‘study in blue and yellow’….
I’ve been thinking about Fred Williams, an Australian artist I admire greatly, and thinking how I could distill the London landscape to its essence. Trying to figure out how to strip out all that information and leave the bare essentials. Then I get distracted by freebie models, or other passengers on the train.
I arrived in Salzburg via the train from Munich and today I am leaving my travelling companions to continue the train trip to Wien. Unusually the OBB was a little late and in addition, coupled the wrong way so passengers were standing in the spot on the platform in the wrong place with no time to move to the right one. Luckily, the train was mostly unreserved and with understanding staff, all the passengers found an appropriate seat. Then I got down to drawing….
PS, not sure what happened there, but my post disappeared between writing and publishing. How strange!
