A few more goes at sketching a likeness.

This lot didn’t go particularly well as it was rather an interrupted day, even a visit to the dentist, although at my age this mostly involves taking them out and the dentist sending them off to the tooth fairies for repair.

Anyway more from the fantastic fiction site, as I am no where near the end of authors beginning with Abb I think I am going to switch over to authors that I have actually read pretty soon.

Perhaps I should have a go at the photos of councillors on the TDC website, my guess is that it is going to be several hundred sketches before I am anywhere near being able to reliably nail a likeness.

Much of the problem is related to doing what are described as field sketches although in actuality these are nearly always town sketches and as they tend to include the people who are in the frame it would be nice to be able to get a reasonable likeness.

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
