compact

Lesley always carried a handbag, which had in it the same assortment of things that women of her generation carried in their bags: brush and comb, lipstick, eye-shade, powder in a compact that flipped up to reveal a make-up mirror, a clean handkerchief, purse, keys, notebook with phone numbers, Bic ball-point pen, odd receipts and bits of paper. In addition to these, her bag contained a basic artist’s kit: 2B pencils, a blade to sharpen them, an indiarubber eraser, perhaps a fine-tipped sable brush, felt-tipped pens, as well as the productions of these tools – envelopes and notebook pages with drawings on them – the branch of a tree, an insect, a leaf or a quick sketch of the posture of someone sitting on a pavement in the sun.
