The annual time traveller’s tea party was held this weekend (in 1862) I was lucky enough to attend – since I knew someone going I was able to snag a lift. I got the guests to line up and then we froze time while I painted them from life. It saves time you see, plus it’s impossible to get a dodo to stay still.
This illustration was done for Advocate Art agency’s annual “Head’s Up” calendar.
Missed self portrait day by a few days, but ahh well. I’m still sick of my own face from last year- thus the rough sketch.
A rough experiment with colour and shape.
