Today’s Sktchy face – for day 27 of Inktober- is Esther. It’s not a great portrait- I missed the likeness and the tonal values are all wrong. I’ve got a migraine today and I was working in semi-darkness because I couldn’t tolerate the light. If I’d been feeling better I might have carried on and tried to rectify some of the problems with more layers of colour. But it’s Inktober and tomorrow I’ll be drawing another one!
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.
