The Battle for the Chair

This is one of the smaller drawings for my forthcoming exhibition about the British Character, the original will be for sale at the show. Despite having a dog some years ago, I’m not the biggest fan of them, but they make great subjects for drawing and the British do have a bit of an obsession with them. Cats too!

  2. Another evocative drawing! That’s my Nanna’s chair, in which she’d smoke, and we’d watch whatever the Beeb threw at us. Her dog Fred was an elderly terrier with unsettling milky white eyes. He’d bark a lot and she’d shut him in the WC which would amplify his barks!
