Sketches on the train, tube and bus in January I
More sketches of people on on public transport. Some of people I sketch always love to see what I am doing, so I show them. It is quite interesting to see their mixed reactions when they see themselves!
"There is a popular notion that artists are born with the ability to draw, but that isn't true. The impulse to draw is there, but no one arrives in this world with the capacity to graphically depict visual reality. I have never known a painter who was just "naturally" good at it and could do it without serious training."
