Drawings of everyday life

What can I draw from this place?

We visited London last Easter weekend. Besides buying books at Judd Books, visiting the marvelous Wellcome Collection and drinking coffee, I drew. Mainly people. If I look at my drawings I see medium shots of people in cafés, at home, on the train or bus. I almost never sit down to draw something. It is the other way around: I find myself sitting somewhere (train, bus, café, a home) and I think: what can I draw from this place.

(These drawings were made on the iPad with the Paper app by Fiftythree)

    • Thanks Jean. My official opinion is that on an iPad it shouldn’t look like watercolor,because if one wants to make watercolors it is better to use the real water colors, so an iPad shouldn’t imitate reality. But this Paper app is so nice, that I forget my principles.
