I drew this guy while he was ordering a pancake with his girlfriend, and then coloured it in when I got home. My skin tones with watercolours are still pretty bad – everyone turns out kind of sallow and pale – and this is one of the first times it actually looks like the guy I was drawing.
Before that, I had been in the Victoria and Albert museum, drawing in the cafe, and before that a quick jaunt through the Natural History museum. Just a quick aside, but I have never been in a museum where the other people where so rude as the Natural History museum, to the point where I had enough of people shoving their cameras, babies, and butts within my personal space as I was trying to sketch. It was not fun.
As opposed to the Natural History Museum, the V&A was loads of fun. They have plenty of stools available for drawing on, but I was kind of tired and had a lot of time to kill, so ended up sitting in the cafe again. The coffee there is excellent if pricey. I’ve no idea what the proper food is like as it’s too pricey for me, which is why I got told off for eating a sandwich in the 15th century sculpture gallery last time.
