What is Train Faces?

I’ve always enjoyed drawing people on the train on my way to work – it’s fun, passes the time and is a good way to practice drawing skills and stay creative. When I caught someone on the Subway drawing me I thought it would be fun to have a place to showcase other people’s drawings from their commutes. So, here is Train Faces ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hello marquis86
    I was so surprised to get your lovely comment. I would be happy for you to include a link to my website (despite the inferior standard of my drawings โ€“ but itโ€™s about sharing, right?). Iโ€™m also happy to return the compliment. Good luck with your blog and your drawing endeavours. In the meantime, Iโ€™ll keep on trying to learn how to draw properly.

    Take care.

    Love the site M. It’s a great idea to gather together lots of different approaches to drawing people in trains. I’m so interested to see how other people tackle it – we all have our our methods.

    Would-be train sketchers might be interested to know that, because every time I post train portraits on my blog, I get lots of questions about whether I ask permission, how I do it in the time etc, I have written an article answering all these queries and giving my top tips to help people give it a go: http://lynnechapman.blogspot.com/2010/06/sketching-people.html

    Power to the pencil! (and pen of course…oh, and charcoal, if that’s your bag, and not forgetting iPad and the like…)
