Urban Sketchers London held their second online sketch meet up via Zoom. Today’s theme was ‘people’, led by John Webb. I decided to sit on my local park bench to sketch people on this freezing but deceptively sunny day.
I admit, moving people are difficult to capture. I roughly sketched the outline of the landscape (path, trees etc) first and added people in one at a time as they walked along the path. This approach made it easier for me to keep to the perspective and proportions.
My favourite person is the little girl in the flowery coat. I managed to capture her as she kept running back and forth along the path.
It’s good to be back sketching outdoors!
