After many sketches of individuals and couples about town here are some attempts at drawing crowds and larger groups, trying to catch the body language and brief gestures that help to connect the figures. The first three were sketched from the top of a staircase above a cafe; one in brush-pen and two in Inktense pencil, seeing which of my current two favourite sketch-tools was best for the job (it was a draw (hah!)). The fourth was done in great haste looking up one of Bath’s many steep streets, and the last one was observed across a busy road. People bring the city to life, and Summer’s a great time to sketch the actors and not just the stage-set and scenery.
