This week I had a couple of meetings in town and took cover from the sudden downpours we have been experiencing recently.
This sketch is drawn on Morrison street from the Pronto coffee bar looking over the busy junction to the striking Scottish Widows building.
I tried to capture the falling rain and wet sandstone on the buildings, and the many office workers rushing around with umbrellas shielding them from the heavy rain.
I do like drawing people holding umbrellas, I’m not sure why. Perhaps its because I don’t have to deal with their faces! It is a great way of setting the scene, along with a few reflections on the ground you can quickly show how the rain is soaking the street.
This sketch was drawn with a fine liner and watercolour wash on location.
