I love Downton Abbey-don’t you?!
I seriously look forward to watching it. Isn’t that kinda geeky to admit?
I don’t care-I’m unabashedly a fan. A couple of weeks ago I was sick as a hound dog and could do nothing. Not. one. thing. So, tucked in on the couch with many blankets, a giant cup of hot tea, my dog, and my sketchbook I proceeded to draw the characters of Downton. I absolutely love drawing people-studying the faces and searching for the little things that set them apart-and then playing with those things a bit. This is something I want to do more of. So I practice, and practice, and practice more. But it feels like playing. Even when I’m sick.
a very stylized version of poor Edith~
His Grace-the Earl of Grantham~
Dowager Countess-~ that hat!!
played by the amazing Dame Maggie Smith
And Mrs Patmore~
And Thomas, the scoundrel~
a very stylized version–trying to figure out which lines are absolutely the most important to convey his essence, and which to let go, hmmmm
Here’s Anna~this one needs more work–doesn’t really look like her so much.
