Drawings in a coffee shop

We had a little holiday last week, which included some time in a coffee shop. I tried to draw Sarah. She’s not really recognisable…

I would like to get better at drawing people to the point where you could recognise who it is.

Then I tried to draw a handrail. That is more recognisable.

I’ve been trying things with shading and hatching a fair bit recently, and this shows more of that.

I drew both of these using a Rotring ArtPen with the M nib. I like drawing in pen because there’s little scope for correction and you have to live with your mistakes. On the other hand, there’s little scope for correction and you have to live with your mistakes.
