Portrait at Shoreditch

The task of the day was to draw people and a point of contact around the shoreditch area. I thought that drawing people and focusing on their eye contact would be interesting, so thats exactly what I attempted to do. While I was drawing, I remembered an workshop exercise I did using an old family portrait, so I applied that structure of that image to the setting I was in.

It's also interesting how much you don't see about people when you aren't paying attention- I saw three people burst into tears within the period of 6 hours in the same cafe. This then led me to be interested in drawing portaits of people who didn't want to be seen.
