One Handed Knitting and Scared Man

This woman really was knitting. However, I didn’t have time to add her other knitting needle. I also didn’t intend for her partner to look so scared (he wasn’t).

I invite you, dear readers, to add your own ideas about what was going on here.

Woman Reading a Paperback Book

Those who are experienced waiters always bring something along to keep themselves occupied.

Man with Two Dimensional, Tilted Head

I was surprised when I finally looked at the paper, after creating this drawing, looking only at the subject. I was hoping to foreshorten his head; he was leaning forward and away from me. However, I can’t help seeing the head as a flat plane tilting away from me when I look at this sketch.  Maybe this would not be the case if I filled in some internal details. Maybe all foreshortened outlines create this effect.

Heavy Woman in Tartan Wrap

This woman was interesting. Her clothing was layered and patterned in a tweedy way that recalled Scottish culture to my mind.
