Train sketching with Brushes



A month ago I was without my car and was traveling to work by train, so I took the opportunity to work on my gesture and portrait studies. Using the Brushes app on my iPhone (no stylus) here are some of my favourite studies. It taught me sooooo much about colour and light, and the larger the brush stroke I used and subtracted I managed to get the correct colours down faster.

  1. These are cool. How much time did you have for these? When I used to take the train, I would draw people but I would try not to let them notice me. I was wondering if you had the same issue.

    1. Thanks Ian! Most of these are about 15minutes would be my guess, some shorter some longer, depends if they move or someone blocks your view. I think drawing on this app, it just looks like I'm playing with my phone, as soon as you grab out a pencil people are always curious. And someone once taught me never to look up directly at who you are studding off, instead look around and take a glance. Hope that helps :)
