Sketching


Two drawings from my little sketchbook that I carry around.Top one was of a gentleman who was busy reading his papers at the library this morning-as I sat behind him with my own books...(A clothed figure- for a change; as I missed my Monday drawing session this week :))
Second one is a bit older...I did it sitting at a picnic table in our neighbourhood park while the sun was still shining.An elderly couple, enjoying the sun and having their snacks at the bench nearby.Later I used ink pen and brush on the drawing.

  3. Hi Arti,

    Your top sketch reminds me of the sketches I did when I was in lectures, supposedly listening to "fascinating" words about dentistry!!!

    Kathryn, I can imagine you doodling during a serious lecture! I actually gave this sketch to this gentleman after I finished and took the picture from my phone camera.He was rather taken aback!
