Early Break

I’m using my coffee breaks to sketch. Since my breaks are 15 minutes, I must be quick. I want to capture the spirit of the scene as well as the important physical features, to make it recognizable.

Much can change in 15 minutes in a cafe. In the scene below, the lady standing at the cashier counter moved to a table in front of me. I drew her twice. She was joined by a friend, who blocked the view of a chair that I had just drawn. I had to sketch him in and block out the chair.

I expect to continue in this vein for a while. I’m sure I will again capture people more than once as they move through the scene and, of necessity draw over previously-drawn figures during the course of my sketching.
