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.

    1. Thanks Phyllis! So few of my sketchbook pages have been nice enough to show in public. I was pretty pleased that this one turned out so well.

      BTW, that latest colored pencil landscape looks great!


    1. 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.


  1. 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.
