Insect Life

Well, some spaces have finally opened up in my work schedule and for the first time in many years, I'm able to do some constructive work in a loose sketchbook! Hoorah! We'll see how long this lasts though...

Here's one from the train journey this morning. A very amenable subject who never glanced up from his paper in 15 mins!


  1. Dale, These are great. The tube drawing is sublime. The lively lines really make this drawing.
    The insects have great character. As always the draughtsmanship is perfect.

  2. Thank you kindly Sir. The tube drawing - I have the wobbly train to thank for the lively lines. I have been pondering over your watercolour sketches - I aspire to the charming looseness with which you work. Am gonna really try to be looser in my non rail journey drawings!

  3. these are really cool, I love the tube drawing!
