54 people, mostly seated, and 2 dogs

During the Summer holidays I binged on sketching the general public in Bath, my default approach to ‘urban sketching’. I enjoy the seasonal differences: sunglasses, shady hats and bare arms in Summer; compared to high collars, long coats and wooly hats in Winter! The ink-brush works well for this, faster than pen as it produces both line and tone, and the softness of the marks suits figure drawing.

(The Urban Sketchers Bristol/South West group will be visiting Bath for a sketch-crawl next month, Saturday 17th October. Details of time/location soon. Hope to see/meet you then..)

    These are great! Especially like the couple, bottom left in the top one. Feel I know them already and could write a short story about them!

    Thanks Chris, excellent idea. The couples above them looked like they were having a moment too! Ed
