Sulphur

Some days I don’t have much time for drawing but I try to maintain my commitment to a daily portrait. That means producing quicker sketchier portraits like this one of Sktchy muse Sulphur. Sometimes I manage to find a better likeness in these quick portraits – I did today.

The amount of time available always affects my choice of medium. I would never choose to draw a portrait with Copic markers if time was short. I might start one on the iPad, knowing I could easily leave it and return to it later. But if I want to start and finish a portrait quickly then I will always choose watercolour or coloured pencils. Today I chose to use Polychromos coloured pencils in a Hannehmühle Nostalgie sketchbook.

I love drawing things. These days I am rarely found without a pen, pencil or stylus in my hands. In my working life I spend a lot of time in meetings and classrooms, reading papers and strategies, so my home life provides a creative antidote to all that! I also have chronic pain, lots of it. I have scoliosis, fibromyalgia and CRPS, so my life is a balancing act, trying to balance work, which make me feel part of the real world, with pain, which is ever present, and art, which soothes my pain.
