‘Drawn In’ 26 May

I finally made it back to one of the National Portrait Gallery’s drawing days. This time rather than have a set piece to draw from there was a musician, Rose Maher, playing songs for Reconciliation Week.

My first drawing was of Rose and her father (whose name I didn’t catch), backing her up on guitar.

Next I tried  the jug and glasses on a small stool, with dramatic shadows provided by the bright sunlight streaming in the window. The watercolour was added later.

My final drawing was of some of the other people participating in the event. The watercolour was added later.
