Subway Drawings: BART Riders

Shaky train, shaky pen; ink with digital coloring
Guns Before Butter; shaky pen & digital coloring

This lady carefully marked up her cheesy crime novel, “Guns Before Butter” with her pencil as she read.  The train ride was really bumpy and so my ink line got pretty squiggly. I switched to drawing her after a big guy with a bike got on and completely blocked my view of the man above her.

I experimented some more with the brown craft paper sketchbook, drawing with a black brush pen on BART and (above) adding white pen and colored pencil at home.

And below, some ink drawings done on BART with watercolor added at home later.

Jana…your people sketches are really good, especially the mouths…an area I feel can “make or break” a sketch. You have nailed them.

Your website is awesome. I am so inspired by your artwork. I am just a baby watercolor artist, I truly love to see someone who can do such beautiful paintings.
Thanks for sharing in such a beautiful way!
