It’s the Summer holidays, which is lovely but it does mean that between trips to the beach, gardening and computer games there isn’t a lot of drawing going on. The other day though a friend asked if I’d be willing to do some portraiture in public for a good cause. The thought filled me with dread and then I started to get into doing some practice. I’ve been bribing the kids with ice cream if they sit still for 15 minutes, or catching them whilst they watch tv. I’m quite pleased with some of the results. Unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to go ahead with the event because it clashed with something else, but I think I’d give it a go if I get another opportunity.
