Another Hat Another Hairdo

14 Mar

hairdo 1

Sketching on the London Underground is great because no-one looks at you and if anyone happens to make eye contact, they look down again immediately. So I can indulge my voyeurism and scribble away. Here’s a great hairdo above and below a rather fetching hat – it was freezing and snowing while we were there.

Problems with drawing on the Tube though, it wobbles like mad so the scribbles can get very shaky and your victim – er I mean subject, might get off at the next stop so you have to draw the essentials quickly and if you’re lucky you’ll have the chance to fill in some details as well. Good practice.

    Enjoyed looking at your London drawings. The tube is great for drawing, haven’t done it for a while, it gets a bit too busy on the way to work.

      It would be a nightmare during rush hour. Luckily I’m a tourist 😀

    What a challenging environment for visual art!

      It’s very wobbly but I like the quality that gives the linework.

      They seem to ignore scribblers, I don’t think people notice.

      It’s fab and quite brave given the freezing temperature – you couldn’t put a hat on it
