Study Group with Girl in Sock Hat and Braids

This is a motley group of students (according to my blind-drawn rendering). The two young women are the most realistic, while the outline of their male does not resemble its subject in any way. There is a sense of ambiguity about this grouping of figures.

Cold Little Girl In the Midst of Studiers

The little girl was very difficult to draw. She was always moving, trying to get her tiny denim jacket in the right position to keep her warm. She must have been too cold to read or to look through picture books. Mom wasn’t too long reading her own books though. The child warmed up quickly.

Large Man in the Way of the Reading I Was Trying to Sketch

There was an interesting gathering in the cafe. They were reading. I don’t know if they were writers, but it was fun watching them interact. I briefly placed each figure to get a sense of space. THEN a very large man blocked about half the view.  But I kept drawing anyway.
