As Ella Henderson says....

" We will Glow, oooh ooh  oho ooooh ohhh."

Like how the colours seem to glow in this life drawing.

Clarinet player

I think.

There was some discussion on the telly last night about if an Artist can depict a Musician correctly if they cannot play the instrument themselves.

That's me scuppered then.

Stood Standing There

Very pleased with this one from Life drawing.

My mate Tiff, who is a regular reader here ( hiya ) and had flown in from Ohio, gamely came along for the session. She had never been before and I didn't want to push too much because, at the end of the day, it is NUDITY.  But she said she enjoyed it and did some cool sketches.

I guess it isn't the first place people think to take visitors to London. Naked people in a Quaker meeting house isn't exactly up there with Big Ben or the Tower. But in my opinion it should be.

An idea has just occurred. A travel company that finds oddball Meetups to take tourists to.

Dragon's Den here I come.

Planes, Planes

There was a sketching Meetup at the RAF Museum in Hendon yesterday. Went along, as always happy to have an excuse to go and draw.

Spent morning in 1st WW hanger with so so success.

But did get to watch two guys who are going to be giving guided tours practising the tour they are going to be giving. First one went around explaining the exhibits to the other, then, later, the other came round telling the first guy the same information. I was intrigued and eventually asked them what they were doing, and it all made sense. 

Spent the afternoon in the modern hanger. Liked the geometry of this side of this plane, with the RAF circles and the wing shadows underneath.

Found it very satisfying and has put some ideas in my head for future exploration.

But please don't ask me what either of the planes were. Have no idea.

At the other table.

I guess I should have known. You go to the BFI you gonna trip over media people.

Had a half pleasant catch up / half possible work coffee and chat the other day.

And at the next table this guy was talking to obviously an Agent. And bigging himself and the work he had done up. We all do it, but it still raises a smile when you hear it.

Wonder if he was taken on ?
