Treasured Family Photo (Replica)


Drawing based on a photo of me with N., in the kitchen.

The photo was taken a jolly long time ago for The Sunday Times magazine, to illustrate a story I wrote about children making art.

It proved hard to find yesterday and amid the general panicky hoo-ha I drew this as a fallback, plainly unsatisfactory but pleasing to me.

I drew largely by memory, then – when the photo was found – phew – I used it as a reminder of the colours on the table.
