The other day I was waiting for the library to open and there was quite a crowd of people waiting with me. I grabbed a pen and sketched frantically, trying to draw as many people as I could before the doors opened. It was wonderful to just draw without a plan and not care about how the drawing would look and where it might go.
I’ve been spending a lot of my free time making my artist trading cards and I realized that I have really missed sketching. I forgot how relaxing it is. How could I forget that?

You have caught the crowd really well considering they were probably moving around a bit. Perhaps I should take my sketchbook and pencil out for a trial run one day. I always get so frustrated when the subject won’t keep still though – but perhaps that is the beauty and joy of a quick sketch – theability to adapt to the changing view.
That is exactly right. It is the challenge of trying to adapt to the changes. I never expect that I will be able to capture what I see, but it’s fun to try.
