The Elizabeth Line June 2023

The Elizabeth Line June 2023

Fellow passengers caught my eye on the way to and from a great day of drawing at Crystal Palace Park with Urban Sketchers London.

The woman on the right inherited her eyebrows from a man I had started sketching several minutes earlier. The man had leapt up and dashed off the train before I had managed to draw the rest of his face, leaving his eyebrows behind on my page. So when the red haired woman took his place I carried on sketching, reluctant to let a perfectly good pair of eyebrows go to waste.

Sketched on location, watercolour added in the studio.
