NHS portait for heroes

Professor Janice Tsui

Today’s portrait is to honour the heros of NHS, who are risking their lives everyday on the frontline to keep the country safe.
I was bursting with pride to paint this portrait of my dearest friend Professor Janice Tsui, honorary consultant vascular surgeon at UCL/ Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. She is research lead of the North Central London vascular network and clinical lead of the UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering vascular engineering programme. She leads the Multidisciplinary Foot Service at the Royal Free, North Central London vascular network.
Not only is she an accomplished professor but also an incredible supermum.
Tomorrow is Janice’s birthday and I hope shes taken the day off from work at Royal free London.
You are amazing and an inspiration to us all ❤️❤️❤️

This heartwarming portrait initiative was started by artist Tom Croft.

Urban Sketch in London

A continuation of my right handed drawing. I quite like the effect of drawing with my weaker hand.

Man in despair

Charcoal drawing of man

Sketch of the day no 1216 is of a man in despair.

Final one for now from the Dom McCullins inspired figurative drawings. I will carry on using the charcoals which I am really enjoying and practice drawing more people.
Growth and change is good. There is no need for despair.

Life is hard and some people get broken along the way

And so I march on with my charcoals and this is another sketch from Don McCullins moving photo exhibition at Tate Britain of a homeless man.

Portrait of a man in charcoal

Portrait of a man in charcoal

I started my sketch a day in April 2013 and I decided from the onset that I will not draw people. In the 6 years I have done 5 bearded characters for Movember.
Now with charcoal, I have changed my mind and I have decided to start drawing people and figures because it’s been an area I have conciously stayed clear from. It’s not that I don’t find people interesting to draw but I feel it’s a subject that is really difficult to get right and that scares me.
My intention here, as with all my other sketches is to capture a feeling rather than a realistically perfect representation of the subject which my phone can do better than me. 📱

Sketch of the day no 1214 is of a portrait of man inspired by The exhibition of Don McCullin at the Tate Britain.

What do you think?

Don Mccullin photo exhibition runs until 6 May 2019 at Tate Britain, London.

Sweet potato fries drawing

Sweet potato fries

Pick the healthier option to make better choices.🍟

I’ve been a vegetarian for about 30 years now and it’s really important for me to eat right especially when I’m travelling and away from my routine. It’s not always easy to eat well, depending on where I am. When I was younger, my body would cope somehow but nowadays if I don’t have a proper well balanced diet, I get tired easily and I feel crappy and unproductive.

Sketch of the day no 1212 in my moleskine sketchbook is of a basket of sweet potato fries.

Happiness in a cone

Soft Serve. Happiness in a cone.

Happiness in a cone. Everyday should be ice cream day, don’t you think?

Sketch of the day no 1212 in my moleskine sketchbook is of a vanilla soft serve in a charcoal cone 🍦

Van Gogh in Britain art exhibition at Tate Britain, London.

I went to check out the Van Gogh in Britain exhibition at Tate Britain, London.

It is quite a large exhibition with more than 50 works by Van Gogh but the exhibition includes quite a lot of works of artists who has influenced Van Gogh during his stay in England and who he in turn influenced.

It is interesting to see some of the influences and comparison to better understand his works and his life but there aren’t as many of his major works as I had imagined there to be.

Van Gogh and Britain is at Tate Britain, London, until 11 August
