I took a few sketchpads and sketchbooks on holiday with me to Puerto Pollensa at the beginning of October along with watercolours, pastels and various other drawing implements, and apart from one day on the beach the only other time I pulled my little A6 sketchbook out was whiling the afternoon away at Club Pollenca cafe where I could order a constant stream of coffees and watch all the people - holiday-makers and locals - pass by.
Here's the first five:
Pencil in sketchbook, A6. #1
Pencil in sketchbook, A6. #2
Pencil in sketchbook, A6. #3
Pencil in sketchbook, A6. #4
Pencil in sketchbook, A6. #5
Each one is often jotted down after having only the merest glimpse, for example the little girl on her daddy's shoulders was "snapped" in my mind's eye when he stopped very briefly to read the menu outside the restaurant.
Don't these people realise they are being captured for posterity?
No wonder I have trouble sleeping at night!
