OKAY I may be a total noob right now ( if you see the link above, everything below would look like awkward crumpets), but why not learn from the best? The only direction I can go is up... right? So today I started sketching in color, the way the Imaginism guys did with their Subway Sketches.
That said, I spent my Friday lounging around the local plaza. The following drawings are from the cafe, in front of a grocery store, in front of an Italian restaurant, inside a Subway restaurant, and finally in my favorite park. The great thing about this practice is that you get to see how interesting people are. Some were absorbed with their conversation, some quietly read the newspaper, and some had circles under their eyes while litting up a cigarette.
I took a HUGE break in between and read Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant by Anne Tyler. Great read, for those who like dysfunctional family stories. The story covers the perspective of a mother and her three children, each telling their personal accounts of how they coped when the father left.
Back to the subject, here are the sketches. I had to use a camera, not a scanner T-T so there is a slight color distortian.
