A long wait after work for my friend, who is trapped at her work. So a little sketching time at London Bridge Station plus a little reading time. I get grumpy when I wait because patience is not my virtue, but that wears off pretty quick once I saw my friend. We had dinner at a lovely little Thai restaurant nearby and then a stroll along the river whilst the weather is still balmy. Now my feet are sore; my shoes are never appropriate.
Rusticating this weekend in England’s garden. It is, of course, the St Mary’s Platt church fete tomorrow (so any daytrippers in Kent, please drop by) and I managed to get out of work a smidgen early to get down here. As did everybody else and the train download was fairly busy. Yay, more free models…this pair boarded the train the stop before mine.
Another busy day at college, we’ve started on our final pieces for etching. I’m doing two separate pieces so spent the morning getting my plates ready and the afternoon waiting for sugar lift to dry. I did some colourways printing with a test plate from last week since I had a little time to kill (sugar lift drying is slower than grass growing).
After college, I went to see Wozzeck at the ENO. It was okay, a bit too modern for my tastes but the orchestra were good. One the train home I spotted this cool cat daddy-o, with his trilby and horn-rim glasses.
You see all types on public transport, which means there is always something different to draw. This lady had fabulous Einstein-esque hair, though I suspect she wasn’t best pleased about it being recorded for prosperity. Really, I thought everyone received the memo stating that only I am allowed to be the shy one…
