Sketchbook: People Walking In the Cold

Today is my birthday and so I am just going to scan some wintry drawings from my sketchbook and show them to you.

These are drawings I did with a couple of pencils (Palomino Blackwing, Mirado Black Warrior) and a wax pastel (Caran D'Ache Neocolor 1) that I'm playing with. I watch "walking" videos on YouTube of people walking, in this case, through St. Petersburg and London. I freeze frame the passers by and do a quick drawing. The original pages in my sketchbook have a notation of the type of pencil and the name of the video I was watching. This is all drawn on a cheap Sargent Art newsprint paper 9-3/4 x 7-1/2 inch sketchbook. I think these videos were all very recent and most reflected the cold that we've had in the past couple of weeks.

That's all for today.

Very nice. You've captured attitude and emotion in a subtle way.
