It's been quite a while since I posted a drawing that I did while riding the bus.

I did this yesterday, but the boy got off before it was completely finished.  Regardless, he was happy to get it ("Boy in a Hoodie")

At least I got a chance to photo it.  Maybe I'll print it on copy paper and finish the shading.

Thanks, Win and KathyKuz.   He was easy to do with the hooodie on.  I did a girl - not so easy and she got off the bus before I finished.

They don't make sketching from life easy do they? That's the worst bit about it.... your models walk away!   ;D Great job.  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Good job Mea. I admire you for drawing on the bus so well.  Isn't it bumpy?  Initially, I thought the drawing was going to be a submission to the challenge.   Patricia

Thanks, Patricia.  Yes, bumpier than it needs to be.  Nah, not scary enough for the challenge.

Val,  yup, it's a bummer when the unsuspecting model walks away.

If your models walk away like that, you'll be doing speed drawing, soon,  Mea!   :run:

It's been awhile since I posted a sketch done on the bus, but I am ever so proud of this one.  Totally freehand!!!

For me to draw that scene from a bus would mean the bus had broken down.  :tongue:

Excellent job there Mea, and blessed you are to have such a memory for detail.  O0      :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks, Zilpa, Val, and Patricia.  I really felt good about this, except the car is a little wonky.

Yes, Val does have a unique sense of humor.  Love it.
