Dog In The City

2 Dec


I stopped to sketch some people sitting on benches in the city centre the other day and one chap had a dog with him. I don’t get much chance to draw dogs, as we’re a household of cats and subservient bald monkeys. So I drew this one twice using Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens in sepia. It was a sweet little thing.

Get Out!

29 Oct


Get out and scribble! Come on. Let’s take over the streets with artists and sketchbooks. I did it this evening, leaving the studio about 10 minutes early and walking down to the city centre to have a scribble. There were loads of people around so it was easy to do some speed sketching. Some people stared. Some even hovered. But I didn’t care ‘cos that’s just how I roll 😉

Tecchie stuff- each scribble took a few seconds – people move fast when they’re cold. Drawn with a Pilot V5 into an A5 recycled sari sketchbook. The small child on the far right did indeed have an enormous hat.
