Craig

I somehow managed to totally lose Craig’s likeness while drawing this portrait. That happens more when I draw with pencils than with any other medium, perhaps because I’m still finding my way and not yet entirely comfortable using them. I think I’m focusing so much on trying to find a technique that works for me that I pay less attention to the actual drawing of the face once I’ve mapped the basic shapes and so I lose the likeness. That’s my excuse anyway!

I drew Craig in my Hannehmühle Nostalgie sketchbook with Polychromos coloured pencils.

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.
