Sketching the audience

I'm trying to get back in the habit of casual small-scale sketching, so took my tiny pocket Pentalic sketchbook to Oregon Historical Society on Sunday when I attended a free lecture about World War I. I couldn't see much but the backs of heads, but since the audience tended older and male, that actually provided a lot of variety!

Some of these men clearly had been spending time somewhere with more sun than we have here in Portland right now...

Nothing fancy, but I enjoyed just fidding with a pen and paper without making a big deal about it, and also was impressed with the look of the neutral brown Super 5 ink laid down with a plain ol' Lamy Safari pen.
