Portraits and sketches

I discovered a bundle of sketches which had been packed away in a trunk, while we moved across the country on my husband’s postings! They are in a bad shape – so I thought I’d scan and preserve them before the brittle paper disintegrates totally!
This is sketch of my brother – I’ve always loved doing profiles! My school notebook would be full of profiles of classmates – mostly done in 10 to 15 minutes!

And here is a pencil drawing of a mother with a baby, undated – probably 1978 or 1979. This is likely to have been copied from a magazine…

I decided to teach myself to paint from a book – this is water colour wash – 1970 thereabouts!

Here is another 10 minute sketch – of my mother in law while she meditated
