Band Substance

It’s Saturday again, so I’m back at the music school, listening to the brass group rehearse. This time I took my Tombow pens with me, and had fun jotting some quick sketches of a couple of players and the conductor (again).

Brass group tombowsI’m finding the motion of the players, and particularly their conductor, really very challenging, but it’s definitely good practice at trying to convey quickly a sense of the person. I haven’t really spent any time before sketching people, so I’m enjoying getting my teeth into these. It’s not often you find a captive, relatively stationary, group of people who are almost oblivious to your sketching – I recommend it!

There will almost certainly be more sketches like this one to come as I try to get to grips with capturing fleeting stances and expressions.
