woman on bus
So this is my first attempt at drawing in public. I found it quite intimidating as it was on a packed bus. I have always hated life drawing classes. I just find there's a real pressure from having people around you; watching you, judging you. So the idea of drawing in public, to me, was very scary. However, there was a lady sat in front of me with her hair tied in a big knot. I was wondering how it stayed there -with no visible pins or clips. I found myself thinking "that would be interesting to draw". So finally I got a notebook out of my bag and this was the result. From now on I'll carry a sketchbook.
