Posted On: Sunday 16th October 2011
Summary: A bit of a doodle mixed media sketch I did while drinking a coffee at Giraffe near Drummer Street bus station, Cambridge

mixed media sketchI started sketching two women sitting on the bench having a cigarette. But they noticed me very quickly and, unusually for me, I suddenly felt self-conscious; lone man sitting at cafe table looking up and down at women. So I sketched the general scene instead.

A few hours earlier I had been in the local art shop and picked up some "bin end" bits and bobs - so this was done (in a small Moleskine sketch book) with a mixture of everything I had bought plus what I was carrying with me. In total these were:
  1. Black waterproof fineliner pen (oultine)
  2. Letraset promarker grey spirit-based marker (tree trunks and foliage)
  3. Neocolour water mixable crayon (dark shadow)
  4. Derwent studio coloured pencil
  5. Derwent pastel pencil
