Having just started drawing again after a break of about 20 years, I thought it would be cool to share them here. I'd love for people to comment and reblog but please do not download or copy without asking first.

Downton Abbey: Anna and Bates talk about having children

They’re one of the nicest couples in Downton Abbey, and in this heartwarming clip we see the servants discuss starting a family of their own. Could this be what they need to complete their lives together?

This is a great scene but I think it points to the (only to be expected) physical problems they might be having since Anna’s assault. It seems to me that this is Bates being a little sarcastic and perhaps a little exasperated, ie if we want a baby then we have to actually be intimate for that to happen. I would rather be wrong and hope I am but that’s just how I read the acting.
Whatever it was, it was still cute!

Thanks for all the likes and reblogs on the progress pic. Here it is finished. Graphite and white pastel on grey toned paper. Bring it on Mr Bates, I’m so ready for series 5!

I started this one yesterday and hope I’ll get time to continue with it today. Can’t wait for Downton next week. I think BC and JoFro will act their socks off once again.

My favorites.

They were my favourites at college.

I know this is rather silly and I posted these edits once before but I’ve made a little something else with them now so I thought I’d share. I’m pretty sure Anna and Mr Bates would love some private time at the beach! Perhaps in series 6, and then they might have a baby Bates with them building sandcastles too!

Very much looking forward to seeing Mr Bates back on my TV screen in September. A pastel drawing done a little while ago.
