A two minute sketch...

© Sandra Busby
I drew this super-quick sketch at a table sale, which I went to with Mum.
I partially hid myself around a corner with my back against the wall... Mum had emptied every box in the place before I had even picked up my pencil! (I'm not great at sketching in public!)

It was at the point where a women stood at the book stall almost directly in front of me, seemingly engrossed in the book she had selected, when I thought, if I don't do it now I will once again go home with a clean page. So, I opened my sketchbook and began scribbling.
I knew that however engrossed the woman seemed, she could walk away at any moment, and I think this feeling of panic helped, because after just a couple of minutes, my clean page was now sporting a sketch of a woman, clearly browsing through a book .
She moved on before I had the chance to add or adjust anything, and actually, I like it just as it is.

It was funny, really. I was worried somebody would realise what I was doing - but instead, the only person to pay me any attention at all was a lady who tried to give me her 50p entrance fee!
