Both of these sketches were born of unusual situations.
The first, was created outside the school, waiting for Harry. Now I've sketched when I collect Harry from school many times before but usually from the comfort of the truck, grabbing a moment before I walk down to meet him. This time I took my sketchbook with me and created my sketch while I stood with all the other parents. I added the colour back at home from memory.
The second was sketched in the town library...nothing unusual about that but I did sketch the traffic lights while sitting in traffic waiting for them to change from red to green, which didn't take as long as I'd imagined it would.
