Drawing groups of figures

One of our assignments this month in drawing class is to draw groups of people. I carry a Moleskin sketchbook with me wherever I go, and while I was downtown this week, I made these two sketches of groups of people.

The first is the audience seated in front of me to hear Amy Dickinson (writer of the "Ask Amy" column) speak at the Voices Lecture series. I like how I captured each back and head as an individual. Different hair, clothes, perspective. I like it.

The second drawing was from a coffee house on Taylor. I watched the construction workers as they worked in the road. Hard to draw a bunch of ever-moving subjects, but the sketch has a nice feel to it.

Have sketchbook, will travel!
