Lizard pattern

Having my first go at a picture for a product... it's taking me an age because it's such a new thing for me! I keep second guessing. Colours aren't there yet, but I'm tweaking...

Imagine Festival

I had a lovely time at the Imagine Festival at the Southbank yesterday, reading the Toucans and doing some drawing, worksheets and having plumbing chat! The audience was absolutely lovely, and did some beautiful expressions drawing - thank you all who came along! Especially the little boy at the end who put up his hand during questions and asked me how old I was - always good to cut right to the chase, I feel!

Here are some photos courtesy of brilliant Ella, and thank you to Catherine for keeping me company and lending support! 

Filling in the expressions worksheets

Who are the twosome on whom to depend?

 Demonstrating that long thing you use to clear out drains... not the flugelbinder, though that keeps leaping to my mind! 

Some book signing afterwards

An Asterix treat for Dyl!

And beer treats for Els and Tor!

Drawing ladies

I'm trying to do more people practise... but so far it's only women in lovely dresses! Must expand this...

They started from Bette Davis in Now, Voyager - I think I covet that film wardrobe above all others, apart from Molly's in Pretty in Pink of course.

EDIT: AND Kelly LeBrock's in Weird Science too! Although this outfit is less practical...

Hot water rules!

Was fiddling around a lot with the bottom lady's pose... think I prefer the right one, she looks more impassioned!
