Well I know I’ve been slack over the past few days and I’ve a few days to catch up on, but I’ve a good excuse I promise, I moved house this weekend and it’s been traumatic! I will catch up with the other drawings over this week.
So for Day. 6: Favourite Character from a Book, I am now actually on a work conference at the winery in country New South Wales but have decided to improvise with a 10 second Biro sketch on hotel room notepaper.
Jane Eyre is one of my favourite characters from a book for her determination, courage and self awareness. She claims her looks are plain and she has a plain way of speaking. Humble and straight forward, her thinking and language are free from embellishments and always truthful and to the point. Case in point ‘Reader I married him’, my favourite line from the book. It captures her lack of fancy embellishments and it’s this plainness, honesty and unflinching resolve I wanted to capture in this super quick sketch.
