Biro on the back of a manuscript


Starbucks, Oxford. Biro on the back of a manuscript I was reading. I got bogged down in fiddly details with the face and didn't get a chance to finish it, as usual. I envy some of the bloggers I visit who work fast and have that lovely immediacy to their sketches

Very well done, I like the expression and posture. I agree with you, I used to do this kind of candid captures and rarely I had them finished, btw it's a great exercise and fun to do!

Yeah - biro's a tough medium-inherently fine line, but still possible to loosen up. Try a 'fatter' pen-

Thanks for your comments Al!

Good advice, Matt - I'll try that. Appreciate it.
