I’m participating in Sketchbook Skool’s ‘story-telling’ course and this week we were blessed to have Melanie Reim as our instructor. Melanie draws at the speed of light, with loose, flowing ink lines and mostly these depict people on the street. She’s an excellent instructor but more important, she’s an incredible inspiration.
So, I found myself sitting on benches in our downtown area drawing people. I’m a slow sketcher so my attempts at quick-sketching anything always come up short. Nevertheless, I really enjoy doing this. In fact, it’s the only kind of sketching of people that I do as they are not my favorite subjects. Here are some of the sketches I did. Hope you like them.
