I don’t think this person was too relaxed. Whenever I sit in a chair without removing my pack I am very uncomfortable. However, my subject was seated long enough for me to shade this sketch by rubbing it with my finger.
I didn’t make any new year’s resolutions for 2018. So far this year I’ve been doing a little of this, a little of that, art-wise. Today I revisited my pen and ink days to sketch ‘Jonathan’, the backpack my daughter gave me. It is a really nice, fabric pack.
