Four Bananas and an Apple, 12 August 2013

Still life drawing by Simon Birtall

At a bit of a loose end this afternoon – staring at a computer with lots to do but feeling distinctly indecisive – I thought my time might be better spent with a sketchpad and some pens. I challenged myself to do a quick sketch of the first thing that caught my eye (within reason). Happily this turned out to be a bunch of bananas and an apple in their fruit bowl home. I sketched them in Uni Pin fine line pens on A5ish paper. I find drawing very therapeutic – it always makes me feel better. Indecision cured!
