Empty train seats


This kind of subject matter always looks so interesting on other illustrated blogs, but I think it’s turned out just the way it looked in real life — unutterably dull.

Very, very good.

The angles are just right.

There's something about these empty train seats that tells a story--so maybe that's why the drawing has more power to the viewer than it does to the artist (who was there). I appreciate that you did all the perspectives and angles so well!

Thanks Nita and Finlay. And Nita maybe you have a point there. I do so often enjoy the drawings of mundanity by other people.

I know what you mean, though I like the drawing. A person or some trash left on the seat would add a focal point ;D.

I disaagree, you have some nice shapes, negative spaces and colours here and your shading provides some interesting texture. Also your draughtsmanship is faultless.
