Gorditas sellers, Plaza San Roque

Digital urban sketching on iPad with Procreate.

I sat down on small stone steps just opposite these Mexican gorditas sellers just near Plaza San Fernando. They knew I was painting them and I shared the image with them when I was finished. They were quite thrilled. even the stern faced stocky older woman in her blue sweater was charmed at my rendition.

Plein air painting and urban sketching makes the artist sort of an ambassador for art by taking it out into the street and democratizing it. ANYBODY can do it… or at least try it. If you can find a ball point pen and some recycled paper, it can be FREE to do it, just GO FOR IT and see where it leads you….
