I didn't do too much sketching on the town today, but I did manage five mini drawings in my mini PaperBlanks book. I'm really enjoying the format (9 x 6.5 cm) i.e. it fits in my pocket and I'm also taking advantage of pen and its non-smudginess...
I started at home, with the terrarium I'm building and the chaos of tools and plants piled on top of it.
I then started looking for the cat, being that he's usually contorting himself into interesting poses... But he unfortunately didn't stay put long enough to get a decent sketch in. Ah well, gesture drawing is nice to loosen up.
Misjudged scale or clever cropping? You decide. My flatmates found an interesting old rice starch box with a rusty lock and branded logo. I found it made great subject matter.
While waiting for a bus, I sketched this clematis. I didn't have long to wait, thus it's pretty unfinished.
On my way home I paused to draw an old gas lamp post - they're still being used here. Many people walked past me, a few back again from their various errands. It's nice to just stop and watch life flow past for awhile. As documenter of things, one adapts another pace, not unlike that of nature. Make like a tree!
