Quick brush-pen sketches of anyone who caught my eye while I sat outside Bath Abbey, waiting for the shops to open last Sunday morning. I got faster as I sketched, focussing on eye-line angles and getting head/torso relationships right (scarves make this easier!). Elbows seemed important, with lots of people carrying bags, holding hands, or with hands in pockets, but I mostly fudged walking legs as a tapering triangle. Spot two views of a man dressed as a Georgian, three photographers, a vicar greeting visitors, a backpacker, a lonely bench-sitter, a mysterious lady smoking, …and one dog.
