Alice is the perfect model. She holds her pose for a long time, her hourly rate is quite reasonable and she needs no breaks for food or a smoke.
I have taken on some new teaching responsibilities at school that require me to teach all day Friday so I only had time to do a quick sketch in the faculty lunchroom. But after yesterday’s disturbing experience on the street I thought it would be kind of nice to sit in a quiet room and draw this guy eating his sandwich.
I haven’t had time to respond to all the comments from yesterday but I wanted to thank everyone who sent advice and wrote about similar experiences. It was much appreciated!
