#OneWeek100People2017: Day three

Day three of #OneWeek100People2017: lessons learned.
Lesson one: don’t go to a mall near your home to draw. I ran into a colleague, a friend and a neighbour who all stopped to say hello. That really cut into the drawing time. Also, the mall lighting can sometimes be really flat.
Lesson two: People in malls don’t stay seated as long as people in cafés. I made a few starts (#42, #51) but the models walked away before I was done drawing.
Lesson three: Standing figures are much faster to draw than seated portraits. When I started to get tired I picked a bench near the passport office and drew the people standing in line. The last six for today (54-59) were the most spontaneous and the most fun to do.

    I’m loving these three days of people, Shari. You may find some to be more successful than others, but I find each one to be so evocative! What you can do with only a brush and gray paint is incredible.

    Nice work as always. I particularly like 42, 46, and 58.

    Beautiful economy of line in those last images, almost like calligraphy.

  6. Fun, fun, fun.. I liked the first one best, then enjoyed the great faces you captures..

    52-58 are my favorites. Maybe I just like people leaving? Seriously this whole thing has been a learning experience. Have tried different pens, pencil and ink and various papers. Since the sketches were fast and small, it was easy to change. Still with one eye.

    I like #57 the best of this group. You are really able to catch so much in just a few lines. I thought about you sketching by the post office line and was inspired to go to our local motor vehicle department. I had captive models there today.
