Lil' bit Downton Abbey

Here's my latest picture. I have been revisiting old sketch books and found some figurative pictures I had done on my foundation course at Stockport College (2005/2006). I absolutely loved the course, the tutors John and Gill Patterson and technician Karl were so supportive of all of us, and really helped students to consider their options and what was best for them in terms of applying to Universities. Without John's guidance in particular, I don't think I would have had the confidence to apply for the MA course at Wimbledon...anyway, I digress!

My point was that I thought I would return to looking at more realistic figures and this lady has appeared on the page. Apart from the bear ears, she's a little bit Downton Abbey (series 1) don't you think? She's also a more realistic version of a character I am creating called Clarabelle, who is drawn in my children's illustration style.
