Busy busy

Sitting on the lawn in front of the Royal Crescent trying to sketch everyone that passes by during a sunny 20 minutes, sometimes just catching their feet, sometimes seeing them in the distance. It’s a sort of survey/sampling exercise, a bit messy, but closer to the busy life of a tourist honey-pot than I’ve managed before! Drawn in brown and blue inks with my new favourite mark-maker, a bamboo dip-pen. Spot the tour guide holding up his umbrella for his group to follow, and someone taking a Crescent selfie… Followed by another recent sketch of people in Bath, this time in pencil, and rain.

    Hmmm. . . It didn’t look that crowded when we were there! 😉 I enjoy your sketches even more now because I can picture the places vividly!

    That was us, last summer! The Royal Crescent, the crowds. You ar lucky to live in such beautiful town.

    They look like spirits rising from the lawn of the Royal Crescent!
    And the second reminds me of those Arthur Wesley Dow notan drawings.

    I do love sketches where the crowd have umbrellas 🙂
