Every day in May no. 15


A very quick sketch today. Drew it while waiting for a bus near a commuter train station on my way home from work. This guy was waiting on the platform, I was quite far away from him and it was only seven minutes until my bus was due, so I couldn´t get too detailed. When I came home I added the red color and that was it.

6,5 x 8 cm, Lamy Safari, Noodler´s Lexington Grey and watercolors on a small Moleskine Watercolor page.

Nice job, especially for such a short time. The red background is very effective.

Wow, I like this one. Very powerful. It makes me think of ' Zen drawing, zen seeing' (or something like that) - a very interesting book.

The use of a single color against the black and white drawing is very effective. I'm going to try that!

Its seems enough time for the good result. I also like this kind of drawings, when we try to get the simple things.

let's try this again...
great drawing as usual. Looks like you captured enough to make it very believable, and the colored background really makes it pop!

Very nice. Your sketches always look like they could be an illustration in a book. I can almost sense a story around them.
