Sketches at the hospital

The hospital is a place you can really get sketching away when you are stuck waiting to be attended to as many people would also be waiting there who have very interesting looks.




I went to the hospital with Ruth today as Josh will be getting a younger brother or sister soon, its very early days but also a joy to see how small we all start off in our mums wombs with modern technology.

I really like your sketches and admire your boldness - I am a bit scared of people's reactions and try to be extremely discreet if I ever draw them!

Annie said...

I love your sketches of people - you are very brave! Do people often realise you are drawing them?

Thanks Annie, some people do and some people don't. In my experience at sketching people in public- most people can't be bothered to care whether they are being sketched or not. The few that do are often ammazed at the skill, while there are others(one in a hundred) who are sensitive and would tell me to stop and I simply would stop-You've got to respect that.

But I have had many who would tell me to give them the sketch or send the sketch to them via e-mail. It gets you as an artist interacting with people and that can be interesting!
