Today we began by receiving limericks; mine was:

There was an Old Man of Vienna,
Who lived upon Tincture of Senna;
When that did not agree,
He took Camomile Tea,
That nasty Old Man of Vienna

From this, our task was to draw the character as we had done yesterday for the vegetable. I found this time around slightly more difficult as I found myself simply drawing a grumpy old man drinking tea, but this had nothing special to it. 

Marie then indicated that it would be easier first of all to focus on the scene in which the character would be found, and his core body structure to draw the initial posture before adding detail. This resulted in a somewhat more developed character than I had achieved in my previous sketch because the background truly helps set a scene.
