There was a lot of whispering. He was very uptight, lots of leaning in and muttering. She was a bit distant. They settled down after a bit.

Not much to say about this one. Couple of people reading the newspaper. They may know each other. Maybe not.


Leisure Suit in Pen and Ink

This drawing is almost bordering on caricature. The man steadied himself with a cane and so wasn’t terribly mobile. I thought he would present the perfect subject; interesting and not terribly active, so plenty of time to study and capture the detail of the facial features and so on. Almost as soon as I started sketching, my pen leaked all over my hands. Sometimes these things are meant to happen. Rather than stop, I just used the ink on my fingers to smear in the background and to denote a little texture on the suit.


Warm-ups

A couple of 2 minute warmups from my lifedrawing class. Some models offer more challenging poses than others and it takes real physical control to hold these, even for a couple of minutes.
