What can you draw in five minutes?
I’ve recently seen challenges like this on various websites such as The Sketchbook Project, intended to make the point that you don’t need a lot of time to draw. The important thing is to draw in whatever time is available.

I wasn’t consciously thinking about this prompt yesterday, a busy day, but as it turned out, that’s about all the time I had for a couple of sketches I squeezed in. After scarfing down a panini during a short lunch break at the Central District’s Starbucks, I sketched an outdoor umbrella’d table and the ghost of a car that pulled in after I started sketching. It took about seven minutes.
Later the same day, we arrived a little early for dinner at Fuji Sushi. Parked in their lot on Sixth Avenue South in the International District, I had an obstructed view of the Smith Tower that I sketched in 12 minutes.
