drawing the line
I've not be doing great work the last two days. I'm going to attribute it to the rain. Normally, I love rain. I like the fact that it restricts you to being indoors, where it is cozy. I also love to drink hot tea. But, yesterday and today I haven't been feeling it. Instead, I'm getting that sad, weepy feeling a lot of people experience. That isn't nearly as fun.
For lunch today I went to Panera so I could draw. Wow, was it full of great characters to sketch....only my sketch doesn't capture this. I guess I just wasn't feeling it. But, I'm going to just call this a trial run as I will be going back and sketching the lunch line again.
Oh, a few notes about this drawing. 1) Yes, the guy in line really was that tall..wow. I think he stood about 2.5 feet above the little old lady in front of him. 2) I'm sure the ladies sitting toward the left would not be happy if they say their portrait....lets just say the "not feeling it" was setting in about the time I got to them. 3) Finally, if anyone wants to buy me a present, how about a new scanner? I must have the worst one on the market.
