I visited the Wallace Collection last Friday with Capital A, a charity that organises art workshops and I was opportuned to get into the large galleries at the Wallace collection. I sketched this detail face of Jesus from a larger master painting, I just can't remember the painting or the artist now. Anyway this is it!

I often go to Rileys with my guys at work to play pool and there is this attendant that is a Jewish girl. She has some sort of captivcating eyes and a deep sense of something I could only figure out by trying to sketch her. She agreed for me to take some shots and I tried the forst in charcoal on pastel board. I showed it to her recently and she loved it. This is the result in stages.
I took a picture early in the morning at Waterloo station last year and decided to make a drawing out of it. This one was done in coloured pencil with some sanguine dust and the help of puuty rubber for special effects and highlights. I wanted to create that morning feel on platform 4 at waterloo station in the morning. It was a bit misty too so I really worked into this one loosing as much detail as possible, this was the result.
I have been sketching people on the tube so I decide to take the sketches a bit further by making a kind of composition of heads. I got some of my best sketches, 10 in number and then I photocopied them (x2) and composed the copies together and then used coloured pencil and pastel to add colour to the sketches. I really tried my best to be free and just put all my feelings into the work, even writinfg buzz words associated with tube and train commuting. this was the result.
