Sketches on the train on a rainy day.

I sketched few people on the way to Manhattan, noon, not too many people, paradise. I was trying to draw not labels but angles, negative spaces, train my eye to take it almost abstract. But when I saw that I draw people out of that abstract shapes in relationships with each other it made me happy.
I used Palomino Blackwing 602, what a wonderful pencil, still amazes me.
Today I had interesting view on foreheads, how beautifully and symmetrical, almost mathematically it shaped. When I draw with thinking  I feel tremendous love for  people. Each and every one so special.

Your sketches are always beautiful and I suspect you get an excellent likeness. Why? Because each face is so different from the last.

Thank you CrimsonLeaves, I am trying to catch the character along with structure and shape, so yes to likeness, not always happy with it, like everybody else. :-) I think it is a very good exercise for a brain and hand.
