You didn't know you were going on a tour of Greensboro this week, did ya?
Here we are at Elizabeth's Pizza where Louie and I shared a terrific lunch yesterday.
A few notes about this drawing:
1) I was in a race [with myself] to complete the sketch from the time we sat down until our cheese pizza arrived. I lost and had to finish up after my 2 slices.
2) My favorite part is the little girl in the lower right hand corner, coloring with her tongue stuck out. This was her favorite part as well as she "inadvertently" snuck over behind me, took a peek and got a big laugh.
3) I would like to add more color to this drawing, but my office at school and studio at home share joint custody of my markers...leaving neither happy.
I've been out and about drawing this week as a way to get back into the swing of perspective drawing as I gear up for a new semester at school. It is helpful to remind myself what works and what doesn't as I'll soon be facing these challenges with students. I learn something new with every sketchbook page.
Next stop on our tour : Dolls of the Orient Massage Parlor...I kid you not.
