Street drawing

 

I’ve been making movement drawings in my sketchbook whenever I can for some time. Often I like the results on their own, but I rarely post just these sketches; they often inform other drawings, but I like the raw quality of the sketches.

Movement drawing studies

Some sketches drawn around Helsinki capturing the movement of people through space. Pencil and brush pen for the quick sketches. Ink and brush working over one of the drawings.

Kinkaku-ji sketch

Kinkaku-ji sketch

A quick sketch from a photo I took of Kinkaku-ji temple (‘The Golden Temple’) in Kyoto. I’d go back in a heartbeat. Beautiful place. I might try and ink this one at some point. I’ll try my best not to add any silly creatures, but I’m not sure if I can help myself… . The temple isn’t actually that old, it was rebuilt in 1955 after it burned down. The site has been there for a long time and the garden was probably one of the most remarkable things about the place.

Sketches of people passing through Euston and Waterloo train stations

These are studies made in Euston and Waterloo station. The main concern in these drawings is to capture the movement of people in space and time. There is a figurative apsect to these drawings that I don’t mind and there is also a more diagramatic study. In all these drawings I have tried to keep the line loose and free. Some elements of the background have been sketched in as a framework.
