I went to a Philosophy Conference on Saturday (one I helped organise in fact; put on by a Philosophical Society I help run). It was a sweltering day, but we had some lively discussion. As usual, I should have been paying more attention to the papers and less time to the features of the speakers. The last fellow had a great face and posture but moved a lot so I couldn't get him. Quentin Blake would have done him justice.
The last two were done really quickly. Again I'm trying to emulate some of the bloggers I admire. The portrait took longer, obviously. It went well to begin with and there was a likeness; then I fiddled with it, lost it, then did some reworking from memory. Not what I'd call a success.
