panhandler scene: take two
This morning I had some time to kill so I wandered back downtown. As anticipated, I was approached by two people asking for money. I wonder if they can't guess by the fact that I am an 'artist' that I am probably 'starving' as well. Hmmm. Anyway, I sat across from the old Kress building, my favorite downtown architectural landmark. Like most other Kress stores, the building is art deco in style. The details are amazing. Unfortunately I wasn't close enough to capture this very well, but perhaps another day.
I've got to start carrying a greater variety of pens in my bag. I feel like this drawing would be more successful if the trees and bushes in the foreground had been drawn with a larger tip pen.
