Waiting Waiting by Tim Mooney

pen and wash of cars in the street

For Zita.

After a funeral then a wake, I was too early for the opening of Simon Fieldhouse’s art show in Liverpool St so I sat down and did a ‘finger in splint’ sketch with that pen. Some clown¬†drove past and yelled at me suggesting I stop sketching. I showed him my splinted finger. The ink is not waterproof so the wash runs have to be calculated …. or not.

Planar Squiggles by Tim Mooney

This one came out of my head.

I was reading an essay on perspective drawing which I very much enjoy. So I started with the top circle (planar reference lines) and finished with all the squiggles. Everything else happened in between. There are some excellent books on learning drawing on the net. All you have to do is get one and start.
