It's Sketchbook Tuesday! I pulled my sketchbook out at the airport the other day and sketched a few people while waiting for a flight to Atlanta, fortunately no one was paying attention. After arriving at the Atlanta airport and tracking down my next gate on the next concourse over via a tram ride and several escalators and at the very end and LAST gate of the concourse I was finally able to sit, catch my breath and pull the sketchbook out again.
People fascinate me, especially when traveling. Don't you love to watch people in an airport? I love it and it sure makes the time go quickly. So, being a people watcher by nature, but not necessarily a people drawer, I just try to get the essence of people (something that catches my eye) down on the page. Sketching people is challenging because they move positions or shift their poses so often it is almost impossible to get a good sketch. But, I enjoy the challenge of working people into a painting or drawing.
