I feel I've had a bit of a breakthrough this weekend. After spending a long time fretting about drawing people and drawing in public, I forced myself to carry around a small A6 sketchbook and a 2B pencil all the time with me this weekend while we were in London. I didn't care about what the 'finished' pieces looked like, I was just going to draw people, on the tube, in the restaurant, in the cafe, every chance I got.
And above is most of what I did - they were all done in just a few minutes and more importantly, without fear ... hooray! I actually really enjoyed doing the portraits, but my best one has to be the 'alcohol casualty' at the bottom; and even more the three girls that kept looking over my shoulder and giggling uncontrollably while I drew him ;)
