Street Portrait (for and of David Hawker), 2012

At the point where The Strand morphs into Fleet Street, I saw David making a drawing of The Royal Courts of Justice. I was fascinated by his gaze and the quick, deft movements he made with his pencil. Luckily for me, David was happy to have his picture taken while he worked. I wish I’d had time to see the final drawing, (there is still a chance, because David’s work is used by London Tourist Board, among others, to illustrate their literature). Anyway, thanks for sparing the time to talk to me and for letting me take your photograph, David. Hope you like it.
