Pregnant with possibilities

It's been a long summer, and I've not managed to get as much drawing done as I'd have like to. But nevermind, I'm here now.

I've been trying to ease myself back into the routine of drawing by sitting down in public - in stations, coffee shops and the like - and sketching people as they walk by. It's obviously impossible to draw someone in the same way as you'd draw them for a posed portrait; they're moving fast and you just get an impression. Sometimes the drawing doesn't even look a thing like them. But it gets your pen or pencil moving across the page, which I think is important in itself. So, here are some sketches, with more to follow soon.
