46 strangers

Urban sketching turns the busy city centre into a giant, free (clothed) life-drawing class. It’s great practise for gesture drawing, and you’ve got to be fast to catch the pedestrians, but some are sitting ducks… Here are members of the public around Bath over the past few months; shoppers checking phones and waiting for friends, lots of bench-sitters, and a queue of tourists for the Roman Baths. The head-down-hands-up phone checking pose is a recent phenomenon and very familiar; 8 of these 46 people are doing it, with only one doing the twentieth century equivalent (reading a newspaper).   (Too many inks/pens etc to list, but mostly Lexington grey and watercolour, A6/A7 and all done fast)
