I bought a large roll of tinted paper for my weekly figure study session, and I folded some of it into little accordion-folded sheets to carry around in my sketchbook. This was the first one I used last week. Today, I filled another accordion fold with sketches over coffee. I love drawing crowded, busy places. But it’s hard to find a crowd in my quiet suburban neighborhood.
My local grocery store sees a fair amount of foot traffic, though. So I parked myself and my coffee at a table with a good view for about 45 minutes and filled in both sides of my accordion fold. I wish I’d left the sky out on the top piece. It’s too much of a distraction.
I used brushpen and fountain pen with black carbon ink, white crayon and colored pencils. Here are some closeups.
Did I mention I’m teaching a workshop at the 6th Urban Sketchers Symposium in Singapore this July? Come draw people and crowds in Singapore with me, it will be fun. More details coming very soon… But early registration is now open!
