People Watching & Mall SketchingOn Sunday, I took my daughter and her friend to the nearby mall. While they shopped, I sat and drew, pencil and Pentel Pocket Brush in hand. It was fun to people watch and surreptitiously sketch. It wasn't too crowded yet, so I had to be careful.
Not careful enough, apparently, as this guy caught me early on during my quick pencil rough. I smiled back and continued, but he got up and left. I had to finish it from my rough and memory. I saw him later sitting elsewhere, but left him alone.
I wish I caught better the gesture and body language on this lady...
This little girl caught my eye, little head, big coat, skinny legs, but I had to work quickly as she walked along with her mom. I did this one in about 15-20 seconds.
I'll post the rest soon.
