Some sketches done over a period of time, all in moleskine with a pen and water brush.

The first two sketches was done in Paris during the summer, while I was nervously waiting for our daughter who had her interview(first job!!) with an architect. She is now working and living in Paris.



The next three sketches are some faces from all over… some OK, some bad and some really bad. I’m quite content with the guy with the ponytail…it looks exactly like him. Pen and wash in moleskine.





And lastly, some people in motion, pen in moleskine. Here I’m happy about the “artist”; he was extremely busy, bending down, having his cloth fall often, painting wildly and I’m chuffed with capturing his energy.

  1. Some great character snaps here, Ronell. I couldn’t spot any ‘bad ones’, they all have life and energy and are full of gestures. Like Lin, I am always happy to see you’ve posted.

  2. Congratulations to your daughter–must relieve you that
    it’s all set.

    I agree with the rest, I don’t see any bad ones. More, please… And I am amazed by anyone who can capture people in motion. I am still trying to get them on a video on the PAUSE.

  3. Oh, you’re back!! (Me too.) It’s so nice to see you posting again!

    Your sketches are super, as always! You seem to capture so much movement in each figure. And the poses are all unusual. It’s not just some person sitting down, they are doing something. I love them all!

    Congratulations to your daughter! Great to get a job, especially these days.

  4. Just off the left shoulder of Pony Tail Man is a brilliant Schubert likeness!
    Not “bad” at all! Clearly, you’re feeling better.
