As I said last time, I have been out and about a lot lately, visiting schools: much more than is usual in June and July.
Anyway, all that train travel has meant I have taken out my trusty train sketchbook out again.
I have been filling it up steadily with a range of new victims, mainly heads and faces, which I seem to be mildly obsessed with, but occasionally other body parts, like this series of hands I tried to capture:
Problem is, I have been too busy to scan things in, so I thought I'd pop some on here to show you, now I have a moment.
As usual, they are all in my favourite 3B pencil. I carry a pencil case full of them in my handbag, all pre-sharpened and ready to go, as there is no time to mess about when you are trying to sketch people.
As I have mentioned before, I always try to draw clandestinely and never ask permission, so people won't be tempted to pose, and I capture them looking natural and relaxed.
