Movement And Proportion

10 Dec

waterstones 6

So a few more quick scribbles from a local café, Waterstones, which is on the first floor so I could look down into the street and draw people going about their Xmas shopping. It was getting dark and it had been raining so the roads and pavements were wet and shiny. This chap was squatting down next to a bench, chatting, and stayed long enough for me to get some of the reflections in.

 

 

It’s harder to sketch people on the move, with just a few seconds to get the essence of the figure onto the paper. I drew with a ballpoint pen into my tiny fabric covered sketchbook, it’s about 5 inches by 3 inches. Although the scribbles were very quick, they help to refine my eye and practise drawing movement and proportion.
