I sketched online a couple of days ago with @ArtofAlvin on his Instalive stream. I love and miss drawing on location, drawing crowds and urban sketching in India. Alvin agreed to draw this street scene full of chaos, which made me happy.
I love drawing chaotic scenes, but even chaos needs some structure underneath. This thumbnail sketch done before I started was a reminder to myself of the strong sense of being inside a shoebox that the light and shade creates in a narrow alley, with the left side of the street in shadow and the long cast shadows on the ground.
