Sketches on the move

 Toronto to Vancouver

I've spent the last week travelling and working, which gives me little time for drawing or painting.  However, while trapped on long flights, on on layovers in airports, it does give me time to sketch.  I've found it fairly easy to sketch in these situations as people aren't usually moving around as much as they normally would.  Even then, the same positions are taken over and over again, so if someone moves, I move on to the next person and wait for the first to move back into position again.

Here are a few sketches of faces along the way.  The last fellow wasn't on a plane : ) only in my head.

St. John's to Toronto

Vancouver to Calgary

Airport heads - Vancouver

Stars, clouds and night flights inspired this fellow

Great sketches - I like the title, Airport Heads :) But LOVE the little snowman the best!

What lovely creatures you have in your head!

Thanks Rhonda, I need to do something from going insane with boredom while travelling. I have no idea where the snowman came from, he just arrived. :)

I wish they were all as lovely Sue.

Are you going to visit Victoria (my home) on the Island?

I wish I could have Gordon, but time and other commitments made it a flying visit unfortunately.
