Tina, on the other hand, is gung-ho about drawing people, and likes to go sketching in populated places. She even uses the freeze-frame on her TV to practice portraits. So I've been forced to practice this skill when she suggests a location, such as last Sunday, when we joined a handful of other sketchers at Third Place Books. I have noticed, thankfully, that with more practice, I seem to be improving at people. I do wish they would stop moving about, though, and would learn to pose properly when I'm drawing them. Not that they know that I'm drawing them (I hope!).
Before we get to Sunday, here are a few sketches from a work day lunch break last week:
Warm-up people sketches (i.e., trying to get back in the swing of things before Sunday)
This girl had the biggest salad bowl I've ever seen
Taking a break from people
And now on to Sunday's outing:
I started outside at the Farmer's Market...and left out the people....
Time to move indoors...where I sketched another sketcher!
Quick studies of people who didn't move too much
People staring at their smartphones are easy to draw
More random people who didn't move a lot
That's it for the sketching round-up. No post tomorrow -- I'm all out of things to write about!
