Bloor Subway Sketch April 28th with gel pens - he was very alert and when I began sketching him, he closed his eyes... for a little transit nap. I do a quick sketch & then work on the drawing later from memory. #Toronto #TTC #urbansketchers #ballpointpen #gelpen #gelink #colorink #figurativedrawing #art #art_dailydose #instaart #artist #sketchbook #sketchoftheday #sketching #sketch #sketch_daily #draw #drawing #artistoninstagram #moleskine #moleskinesketchbook

First, I used a pen with a fude nib, which I liked, and am waiting for a new pen barrel to come into stock. Then, with a gift

Sketch 13 April 2018

Yesterday on the University Subway, 13 April. She was a beautiful Korean woman. My initial sketches are in gold ink and a bit scribbly - if I’ve focused on someone to draw them, I seem to be able to see them later almost photographically honing the drawing & for skin tones & clothing colours.
