Gypsy Fair

You invariably find interesting characters at gypsy fairs.  Here are two good sports who didn't mind modeling, and I'm not talking about the Bedford and Ford.


  1. I always wanted to go to a Gypsy fair and these sketches made me think I will have the time to roam around and Mario will be fully entertained with colorful subjects!
    Your drawings are a big encouragement, I'm losing my fear of using color :)

    1. Obrigado Liliana in return for the encouragement. I'm sure Mario would. There is always something quirky to sketch at such fairs, the band, the tarrot reader, handicrafts, old buses,stain glass, the masseuse... in addition to the exceptional faces. Pixie the gypsy printed our sketches and relayed her thanks.

      I love colour, I carry 100 pens, probably only use 20 but it is great for the 'Oo Ah' effect :-) I was intrigued in Israel that the majority of sketchers use markers, first time I've seen that - usually it is water colours. Might be due to graphic design jobs etc. I see you both also use markers at times. Cheers.
