I wound up having to take a lot of transit this week cause I had medical tests at various doctors, so I had more unterwegs time. There were actually two more women, on either side of these three, also with bent heads reading screens or books, but only these three had bags with rectangular bases in their laps. I imagined the young woman on the right to be a fashion student or designer. She was wearing these cream-colored wide-legged pants that were so striking and unusual for January.
Here you can see me being mesmerized by all the textures and shapes of how people bundle up.
As I mentioned in the first unterwegs of this month, it blows my mind how wrapped up people stay on the warm train!
edit. to add one more train drawing, which I did on the way to yet another doctor appt!

Drawing a foreshortened face is always a good challenge.
I appreciate people who are reading a book very much for this! I have a tutorial about drawing skulls here where I talk about my approach to the face in perspective.
People in Berlin are all so bundled up in the winter!
Thanks to menopause I run hot and wear about half as much wrapping as most people. Sitting on the cozy subway and buses and trams, I marvel at their bundling. Many people do not even open their coats on the train! While I get on and am immediately clawing mine open 🙂
edit. to add one person who DOESN’T bundle up: this very tall pole dancing guy I’ve seen several times on the U7!
All the thanks to my beautiful Patrons on Patreon whose monthly financial contributions make it possible for me to make documentary art of life in Berlin.
