I once met an illustrator some years ago who said that he never used a camera and that he 'draws everyday'. I remember being mighty impressed. These days, thanks to regular sketching, I use my camera less, and while I may not draw everyday, the days I don't draw I am usually thinking of a drawing or preparing one.
So here are a few glimpses of the week that went by - the first one, a lovely Italian dinner made in front of me, complete with freshly baked bread, goat cheese, grilled prawns, roast potatoes...and some very charming and intelligent company. The second pic is a beautiful banyan tree at Madhavan Park and the third picture is a preliminary sketch of the trainer at my gym who wanted me to do a picture of him and his girlie from two hazy photographs taken on his cell phone. 'You do this for me, I take care of your phitness' said he. So much for ranting about fees in an earlier post, I did this and gave it to him. I think the way he blushed when he saw himself and his girl in the drawing was thanks enough.
