Drawing from the hip

I said, recently, that my favourite Sue Bamford works lie in her abstractionist landscape strand; and, indeed, it's a picture in that strand which I've bought from her current show.
However … looking through her latest sketch books, while at the show, I was was competely entranced by the “snapshot documentary”, photographic eye, quality of her representational drawing.
Weeks later, I still find my mind returning to one particular set: an urban sequence compiled around a James Joyce theme.
This one, framed in the wing mirror of her car, is an example. (As always, click it for a larger view.)
