Street Drummer

image

At nearly five in the afternoon Yafo Street in central Jerusalem was full of hurrying people. A street musician began to play the hang drum and people stopped to listen. I was lucky to be already sitting across the street drawing and so began to sketch this scene as quickly as I could, using a gesture style for my line and just a simple wash for color.

This is a pen and watercolor sketch on multimedia paper. I made some adjustments to it in Procreate.

    I like the multicoloredness, and the relaxed energy of the drummer.

    • Thanks, your comment reinforces the decisions I made before posting. I went back and forth with making the sketch darker in Procreate since it was a late winter afternoon, but finally left it as I drew it because I also liked the colors.
