Finding Action, from a Distance

I’m learning to catch them anytime I can, even if it is just drawing from a distance, from my car. Always having my sketchkit handy when I’m running errands helps.

I pulled up across from this construction on my way home last week and did this quick sketch in pen and ink, wax crayon, and watercolor.

This one is from my car, in the parking lot outside my local Trader Joe’s store. Just pen and ink and wax crayon (in three primaries, red, yellow and blue) as I layer in people all over the page when they walk past me with carts and bags.

Do you like drawing people? Miss drawing them during the pandemic? Have you found ways to keep at it?

    Love the energy of the people.


  2. I love your people. Your class on Craftsy/Blueprint was my favorite! I used to spend hours in coffee shops sketching people. That is out at the moment. The malls are open in Australia. They have separated the chairs in the resting areas for social distancing. Last week I found a chair outside a bakery and was able to sketch people. Another area is the local park where people social distance for their yoga classes. Plus I do sketching from the car. I do miss the coffee shops.

    I miss sketching people so much… but you’ve given me good ideas to try soon.
