Sketchbook time

Hi there. Its been long since I posted anything from my sketchbook. I know many of you out there love to get a peek into other artist's sketchbooks. I too always look forward to it. 

These two sketches were done yesterday (15th August, Independence day of India) at a coffee shop. While I was sketching the gentleman below he realized in quick time that he was being sketched and exclaimed to me 'Oh looks like I am being sketched'! I dont know why but for a moment I felt like a thief who has been caught red handed by the police. But being a nice person he was he gave a nod for me to continue. Other sketches were just gesture studies of people who did not realize they were being sketched. :)

While I was just cleaning up my book shelf I found this abstract doodle I had done about 12-13 years back. Completely meaning less doodle, but thought it would be an interesting post.

Have a happy weekend everyone.

That abstract is awesome! The sketch is very good. I admire you for doing that, in a public place. I always feel very intimidated when I'm drawing and people are aware of it. Will you give him the sketch, or keep it?

I love your sketches and doodles Prabal - I am definitely one of those who enjoys a peak in an Artists sketchbook. I must admit, I'd have been mortified to have been caught out, lol! :0)

Hi Prabal!
I love your story about getting "caught", sketching!!! Had a good laugh. And I do like peeking into your sketchbook - thank you.
That doodle reminds me of the ones I did while sitting in math classes at university [ not good :) ]

Guys, Thanks for liking the sketches and the post. It was a scary position to be in, but it did make a good story. :)

I would have given the sketch had the gentleman liked it. Since he did not ask for it I guess he was not impressed really. :)
