Stick People

Husb and I spent the last day of our short Belgian break having a wander around Brussels in the unseasonal heat. We stopped under the shade of a tree in a park for a while and watched while a group of young men kicked a ball around. I scribbled them, they moved fast and were very energetic so it was hard to do anything more than contorted stick figures. They remind me a bit of Lowry.

Then I drew the people lazing in the sun. I noticed that many have stooped shoulders and dropped heads because they’re constantly using Smart phones. I used a graphite stick into my A5 hardback sketchbook.

    It is wonderful how much a stick figure can capture and show. Yours are delightful.

      Thank you. They’re done so quickly you can’t see what they’re like until they’re done πŸ™‚

      Thank you πŸ™‚ I will have to do more like this. Made me very focused and observant. Sparta is nudging my tablet as I am writing this. Wants to communicate with Nigel I think 😁

        Nigel is off adventuring right now. I’m sure he sends a gentle swat her way! πŸ˜€
