We live on a street that’s popular with walkers, so there’s a steady – but fleeting – stream of models right out the front door. I enjoy the challenge of drawing mostly from memory; seeing someone for about 5 seconds then quickly getting the essence of their look and locomotion onto paper
Public events are a great place for drawing and musicians are especially good subjects because they’re expressive and usually hold a pose for awhile.
If this was on unlined paper I’d fix it up in Photoshop, but this way you get to see all my mistakes.
This was drawn at a jazz concert at River Park in Geneva.
