There is nothing better to me than drawing "on location"...especially when "on location" includes a mozzarella and tomato panini :) However, I always find it a struggle integrating people into the spaces I draw. It's strange because I feel comfortable drawing people....and I feel comfortable drawing spaces....just not the two together. I think it all boils down to not knowing how detailed the "scale figures" should be. For instance, I ADORE the figures José Louro puts in his spaces but when I try something similar in my own drawings they come out much less successful. In essence, they don't "agree" with the rest of my lines. This is something I want to continue to work on.
Any words of wisdom? Do you share a similar drawing "struggle"? If so, tell me about it. Perhaps we can help one another.
