Whenever I get stuck with my work, or as is the case today, I'm stuck and waiting for paint to dry, it's very good to keep drawing - anything at all.
This was inspired by a word prompt from the 'Illustration Friday' challenge.
The word this week is 'Nostalgia'. I have two reasons to do this.... I've a giant box of new coloured pencils I want to try (so not how I normally work), and the last two paintings have been in oil, so I want something fast - I'm taking a big step outside my comfort zone.
These two ladies are regulars at the Westfield social club and this is their story.....
The Westfield is a working mens club in Newcastle. If you go with these old ladies, you don't buy a drink at the bar because they each carry a different spirit in their handbags (which are on their knees under the table). They've had a drink and are waiting for the meat raffle to be called.
