Sketching On A Train

18 Sep

Husb and I went away for a few days, to the Lake District and Glasgow. Hectic but great to get away after all these many months of lockdown. I love sketching on trains and did this one into my A6 leatherbound sketchbook with a ballpoint pen. I’ve been keeping sketchbooks for many years – it will be obvious when this sketch was made by the mask – everyone’s in masks.

LATCH, The Children’s Cancer Charity, Painting Fundraiser

I’ve been painting these ‘fakes’ with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook since lockdown started in Spring 2020. I’m selling some of them to raise funds for this lovely charity which has given so much support to my young relative over the past few years.

    When I worked in Chicago I did a lot of “people on the train” drawings on my daily commute. I could usually snag a seat where my subjects wouldn’t know they were my subjects. The train had an upper level which made it easy to look down at various angles too.

      Oh yes, I went on some two storey trains in the USA, never come across them before 😀

    Thank heavens everyone was wearing masks. I winder how long after this pandemic is over before people forget why everyone was wearing them. Did we really notice all the mask wearing from photos of the 1919 flu pandemic? We are now but I am thinking many will prefer to ignore/forget all about this one asap.

      Unfortunately not everyone was. The train started in Scotland so masks were compulsory, but as soon as we crossed the border into England, a lot of people took them off. Husb and I didn’t and neither did this chap.
