Sketching on the Bus

EDM #255 Draw a person near you on train

A few weeks ago it was snowing and I had an errand I had to run so I rode the bus downtown.   I thought it would be a great opportunity to do some sketching .  I found myself a seat behind this kid and I just had to draw his hair.   Luckily he didn’t move much and he sat there for my whole ride. I was glad that I had my cool and warm gray Pitt brush pens with me.   Unfortunately I wasn’t able to do the hair justice, but it was great fun!  I like to imagine that he knew I was sketching away behind him and was secretly pleased.

      Thanks Donna! I’m so pleased that you liked this drawing. Drawing hair is often hard for me so I was so excited to share this one.

  10. That is a great sketch Mellanie. You have captured the back of a young kid’s head really well and the hair is excellent. You are too hard on yourself.

  11. Great work with the hair
