Pencil on paper 21 cm x 29 cm, 8,2" x 11,4"

It's not as if I haven't been painting at all lately, but unfortunately the results of my occasional attempts didn't turn out good enough to be presented to the public. I am a bit rusty, I must admit. So, at our last plein air sessions, nowadays rather indoor sessions due to the temperatures, I opted for drawing instead of painting, realising that that is a good exercise for me. The drawing above was done at the Geoffrey Museum here in London, a quaint little museum that exhibits the quintessential style of English middle-class living rooms. The sketch depicts a curved hallway, where visitors can sit and take a break during their visit.

Super drawing Liza,

I love your drawings. Please post more.

For most of us, a drawing like this would be harder than painting. Turning out this little gem because your paintings are not up to the standard you have set makes me think
masterpieces are on the way.

Thank you, my dear Barbara! In this regard "we belong to the mutual admiration society"!

Liza Hirst said...

Dear Julie,
Such a nice comment, for which I thank you very much!
And I hope you are right because I do plan to get back to painting full time at some point.
