I’ve been making movement drawings in my sketchbook whenever I can for some time. Often I like the results on their own, but I rarely post just these sketches; they often inform other drawings, but I like the raw quality of the sketches.
Some sketches drawn around Helsinki capturing the movement of people through space. Pencil and brush pen for the quick sketches. Ink and brush working over one of the drawings. These sketches are ongoing.
These are studies made in Euston and Waterloo station. The main concern in these drawings is to capture the movement of people in space and time. There is a figurative aspect to these drawings and also something more like a diagram or mapping of movement. In all these drawings I have tried to keep the line loose and free. Some elements of the scene have been sketched in as a framework.
