In today’s episode, we talk about sketching in public places and how to do that with more confidence.
After our sketching trip to London late last year, we thought now would be the perfect time to talk about the topic.
Obviously, our number one tip would be to get yourself an incognito disguise like a furry hat and moustache or horses head mask. Failing that, we do have a few other suggestions from ourselves and the advice you all shared on social media (thank you).
Some of the things we discuss:
- Most people won’t bother you, or if they do they’ll usually be kind
- Places to go when you first start sketching in public
- What materials to take
- Why simple is sometimes the best idea
- Ideas to deter people from approaching you
- Going out alone or in company. Sandra talks about how she was almost murdered twice (Note: Sandra has a vivid imagination)
- How to be discreet drawing people
Also, Sandra mentions a light tent that she got for Christmas. If you want to check out what she means you can get a similar one on Amazon.
