FORGOTTEN YOUR SKETCH BOOK? TRY THIS
NO SKETCH BOOK WHEN YOU'RE AT AN EXHIBITION?
GET THE CATALOGUE, AND FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING EASY STEPS.
Step 1. Forget what you've told your kids about not drawing in books.
Step 2. Check that the catalogue had a few blank pages.
Step 3. Buy the catalogue.
Step 4. Borrow a pen from a curator.
Step 5. Find somewhere to sit.
Step 6. Draw something.
This is exactly what I did when I went to the Hockney exhibition in London a year or two ago without a sketch book. And this is a sketch (albeit not a very good one) of a man looking at Hockney's Portrait of Peter Sleisinger. If the man recognises himself from the back of his head and want's to buy his portrait by me, he should get in touch right away. The same applies to Sleisinger and Hockney.
