I like the late-day sun and waited for the right moment for the person to cast the genie shadow on the world of Atlantis.
I’ve never seen this pattern in the sky. I have seen it before, however, on the beach. Receding water of the ocean often leaves this design on the shore. Perhaps the same action was taking place in the sky, with the wind assuming the role of the sea, and the cloudy mist playing the sand.
We frequently have return visitors to the cafe. I have encountered this man before. He loves to read. I was about to draw his shirt when another customer placed her knapsack directly in my way. This visual element certainly changed the overall design of this sketch.
I just couldn’t get out of the way…
I don’t remember exactly what my thoughts were when I started this composition. Tears were a part of it. I’m sure of that, but I don’t know why exactly. After the initial design, I concentrated on balancing the colors with their complement, without imbuing any further meaning to the work.
