City life

People about town; waiting for the lights to change so they can cross the road (excellent fast sketching opportunity, the tableau changes every couple of minutes…), watching a busker (the violin playing slack-rope walker I’ve sketched before, see below), dodging a heavy rain shower, and enjoying the current Grayson Perry exhibition. The brush-pen’s liberated me to do many more of these ‘on-the-go’ sketches, leaning against a wall, trying to catch the key shapes of life flowing past, great fun!

    Love the umbrella gestures. Something of the Hokusai manga about them…
