Quick subway sketch

with one comment

I haven’t been sketching on the El much recently, but I’m hoping to get back into the game.  Who needs a sketchbook when I always seem to have random scraps of paper in my pockets?

Winter on its way out

Hold on to that snow hat with the awesome ear flaps just a little bit longer.  The end is just around the corner.  Right?

Partway there

It can be frustrating when your subject suddenly shifts their position or heads for the door of the train.  I’ve begun to view this as a kind of cool opportunity to see whether I can salvage the sketch and give it some new direction.  I like this new challenge as it adds something interesting to the game and forces me to deal with what I have in a way I wasn’t anticipating.

These were the words coming out over the subway PA that struck me as kind of amusing.  Because ambient sounds add so much to these scenes, I have it in mind to run some of these sketches along with the audio tracks I record while sketching them.  I hope to start hitting this soon.
