My portrait sketch from the “On the Train” post – was recently featured in a post on Trainfaces.

This blog is dedicated to showing the work of people who do not tweet, twitter, post or blurp on their morning commutes. Instead, they pull out the trusty sketchbook and pencil and draw their fellow commuters.

I think this is an amazing way to hone your observation and drawing skills. My entry is not as surreptitious as everyone elses because my subject was actually posing for me.

I realised that a lot of my sketches would qualify, except for the fact that they were not done on a train. Cars, planes, and speech evenings feature in my impromptu figure drawings. Ah well, I guess it’s too much to hope for a Trains-planes-automobiles-and-speech-evenings-faces blog.
