the paper quality isn't the finest I have ever come across, but at least it is a sketchbook
the opportunity to sit and watch people gives me the chance to very often sit unobserved from a suitable vantage point. It's lovely being able to do this, especially as people relax when they don't realise they are being drawn - I always fear being told to mind my own business or 'how dare you draw me', but as yet that hasn't happened......thank goodness!
which actually leads on to the fact that when I am in the car, it means I am in my own space and people leave you alone for sure
my Uniball pen comes in very handy as sometimes I don't go in with a pencil first. The top figure was a chap just resting on his elbow - as usual people move about and he left before I could finish him...doh! Whereas the lady with sunglasses (I think she realised what I was doing!) stayed in position a bit longer.
as with this lady passing the car.....
and before going shopping I took time to sketch this view - regardless of the industrial building and the car park, there were fields in the distance
and on another occasion this couple with their romantic gesture...
no I wasn't intruding, there were loads of people about....but it did make a lovely scene especially on a picturesque little bridge!
So there you have it, a glimpse into some of my sketches
in my very small sketchbook
