As I draw the last entry of my sketching people at work competition, I ponder on what makes good sketches? To me, it is the ability to communicate feelings, which is just what I tried to achieve when I drew Amy working at the Cafe.
Where I ask a strange question and get to draw Sam – a mechanic, while he fixes my car for my second entry for the ‘Sketching People at Work’ competition.
When I get all my art supplies out and play with different urban sketching techniques.

Don’t wait for a special trip to open your sketchbook – find exciting sketch ideas in your everyday life. You will draw more and improve your skills but you will experience a deeper connection with your environment too.
