29th May: a quick sketch on the way to the station.
30th May: I've been doing an exercise that involves staring at the shadows in the corner of a room for fifteen minutes and describing them, then doing the same with an un-changing object. After the initial 'What? Fifteen minutes?' (and so on...), it was interesting to notice the difference between describing something with words and by drawing- I felt that I could be more specific with words, somehow, and had to work a lot harder to be precise with lines and colours.
