Cambridge railway station collages

Sep 3, 2014

Station8_1000pxLast Autumn, I decided to dedicate much more time to drawing. All my years of travelling I have always sketched people, so I went back to my roots – people on the move, going about their daily business. I naturally gravitated towards the railway station, still on the travel theme . People are focused on their journey and give me little attention – even when they sit in my sketch!

I have an A4 moleskin sketchbook, handful of pens and pencils and a small bag of collage papers and glue. Cambridge station has some good window sills and benches to perch for a while but generally I keep moving – as do my subjects. I do love the strong lines and shapes silhoutted in the station. Here are examples of the first stage.
