Bath’s Christmas shoppers filling the wet streets (a festive carousel in the far distance), battling the wind and rain, pacing the pavements, queuing for the bus home, and generally milling around town. All sketched using my new best friend, the Kuretake #8 brush-pen, filled with lovely Lexington grey. Sketching the top one was as hypnotic as sketching waves; trying to find patterns and individual subjects amongst the continual movement… Have a peaceful holiday!
Lexington grey in Kuretake #8 ink-brush, and diluted in a water-brush, watercolour, A5 – The one at the top took about an hour, the rest various times
Have a Merry Xmas, Ed! Love the blue glow of the street in the top pic. — Stu
Thanks Stu, white watercolour with a bit of Payne’s grey. Have a lovely holiday
Oh, this is so great! (I have never drawn a crowd in my life – so intimidating…) The sketches all have great energy, but I particularly love that a horse appears in the last one. We don´t see a lot of horses in the streets here… 🙂 Merry Christmas & A Happy New Sketching Year!
Thanks Viktoria, the top crowd scene was fun, once I’d got the relative heights of the people for the distances down the street sorted… The horse was pulling a passing tourist carriage, didn’t have time for the rest of it! Have a lovely holiday
