Life, London and Love

My eldest daughter's just moved to London. Here she is with her husband outside their new home. She looked after us really well, cooking breakfast in the morning! We had a lovely time. When I was young I used to look out for celebrities on my rare visits to London, never saw anyone, so when we went to visit them last week I didn't bargain on seeing Rob Brydon and Simon Cowell while we were out and about. (Not together of course!) Simon Cowell had his new girl on his arm.Here's one of my drawings from friday's life drawing. The other drawings I did were a bit of a disaster because I wanted to concentrate on his face but the model was chewing gum in a very exaggerated way so they're best kept where they are in the sketchbook!

And last of all, let me wish you lots of love on Valentine's Day whoever you're with and whatever youre doing! Have a lovely weekend :)

Hooray! The sun is out. Spring around the corner. Happy Valentine Day, Jessie. I like the tree heart.

I like the detail in the valentines heart! We have this lifemodel who cannot seep still, he insists on playing the tambourine when we are drawing him!

Jessie said...

Thanks Harriet,...the tambourine...LOL! you're going to have to draw pretty quickly then!

Love this pink heart & trees painting! You do very charming work.

Jessie said...

Thanks Susan, yes it was!

Thankyou Theresa, it was originally more purple than this so I pinked it up with the magic of the computer!

OMG, I have always wanted to live in London! We rented a flat there once for a couple of weeks--heaven! Their house is beautiful.
