Lost and found

These sketches were looking out of a cafe window. People move faster than you think so you really have to stare at them to memorize their expressions and features before they’re gone.

I thought I’d dropped this sketchbook somewhere or left it on a bench last year but found it today in the side pocket of my cycle pannier, a pocket I hardly ever use!

Below are some sketches from an old press photo of Santiago U Peralta, casino manager in Argentina, that I made for a stone carving which I never completed in 2003. This, bizarrely, led me to walking the Camino de Santiago three years later, which I did complete, in 2006. Above are two sketches from that walk.
