Gina1 ballpoint sketch

This is the sketch I told you about that I did with Tescos ballpoint and gel pens. It was interesting to draw without being able to rub anything out. (I like rubbing out so much, I have been known to draw with the rubber as well as with the pencil so this felt like a strange exercise.) It was drawn from memory not a photograph.

This is the beginning of one the three projects I'm now engaged with - The 5 Sisters. I've been given lots of photocopies of pictures of the sisters that I want to draw and paint. I shall use these together with memories and real life visits as a base for what I do.
