Sketching the man with the Guitar
THE GUITAR MAN
My search for interesting models takes me outdoors and while walking through the London streets I keep looking at everybody as if to say-yes! that would make a good sketch! Most of the time, it's the homeless and road-side beggars that have the faces with the most character.
THAT'S ME SITTING IN FRONT OF THE MODEL
One of the days a week ago I was feeling so downhearted after loosing my wallet a day before around Soho, I decided to take the worries off my head by sketching this guy after another frantic search for it (Sounds Silly, eh). The Good news is, after sketching this guy and helping him out with a good deal, I got an email that I needed to come, just a few blocks up the very street I was sketching the guitar man to collect my wallet! It still had my money, cards and everything intact! Now, believe it or not-God moves in mysterious ways his wonders to perform. Keep Sketching!!!
THE GUITAR MAN WITH HIS SKETCH
For this piece I have used a variety of soft pencil in my A4 Moleskine Sketchbook.
