It’s hard to work standing up. And potentially dangerous.
I recognize stand-up sketching is another area I fumble around in and into which I'd like to delve more deeply and improve my skill. That way I can grab quick sketches while I'm on the go, either hiking or on my way to a meeting. I'm habitually early, so I'd love to be able to stop for a moment and capture something of the day.
On the way to grab coffee with a friend the other day, I stood on the corner and started practicing this new skill. I quickly sketched the coffee shop. Perhaps I’ll return and add color later.
I was playing with my new Lamy Joy fountain pen with the 1.1mm calligraphy nib. I like the variety of line it creates.
But things got dangerous when I walked off the curb and right into the path of an oncoming car. Luckily there was a stop sign, so no one got hurt.
Never knew sketching could be so risky.
