[小城故事] 人物速寫 / Sketching People

最近等車的時候開始練習畫人。

偷偷觀察在這個城市生活或只在此路過的人、想著他們的目的地和背後的故事,對我來說是一件很有趣的事。

I started to observe and sketch people around me when I was waiting for the bus or train recently. It’s quite interesting for me to look at people and imagine what kind of story they have or where was their destination.

 

1. 抽著煙等公車的英國大嬸 / A Lady Who Was Waiting for the Bus

20170907

推著可以當坐椅的買菜推車,在公車月台一會兒坐著一會兒站著,顯得很不奈煩。在煙霧彌漫中看見遲遲前來的公車,第一個衝到門前上車。

上車後拼命和剛才在月台認識的另一位大嬸聊天。與他們同車的我,聽了一整路大嬸們的聊天內容:最近做了什麼菜、哪裡買得到新鮮又便宜的蔬果、小孩多大、鄉里有哪些八卦……忽然發現:大嬸就是大嬸,所有國度的婆婆媽媽們其實都一樣嘛。唯一不同的是,當其中一位大嬸要提前下車了,他們互說:「再見啦親愛的!」和「再會啦甜心!」

A lady who was smoking while waiting for the bus looked annoyed by the delayed bus. When the bus finally arrived, she was the first one to get on the bus.

The lady kept chatting with another lady she just met at the station. As I was sitting beside them, I could hear what they’re talking about. Interestingly, what they’re talking about was almost the same as the ladies in my country: how to prepare a great dinner, where to buy fresh and nice vegetables, how their child doing…and of course, gossip. Not until then did I know that all the ladies in the world were the same! The only difference between them and the ladies in my country was that they were saying: “Bye my love!” and “Goodbye sweetie!” when they got off the bus.

 

2. 穿著好看的正咩 / A Beauty at the Station

我拙劣的畫技畫不出正咩的美和修長的腿(艸←捂臉之意)。或許是因為穿著打扮的關係,雖然手裡捧著一個奇妙又不知為何的東西,仍然散發令人過目不忘的美。

My poor drawing skill was not able to show how gorgeous the beauty was…

She looked really nice in the scarf and boots even though she was grabbing something unknown. I would say it’s an unforgettable beauty.

 

3. 行蹤可疑又在畫畫的人 / A Weirdo Who Was Sketching at the Station

Actually, that’s me!

I felt I was a weirdo who was looking and sketching people at the station! (Please don’t call the police when you see me! lol)
