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.
The middle fellow is questioning a point made by the young lady. He does this surreptitiously to his friend as the woman looks away. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
Sometimes I work in the morning. I sketched this company of men. It was the first time I’d seen them together.
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.
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.
This was an animated group.
Sometimes people wait in isolation. Others wait in groups, as this trio below.
I’ve seen these folks before (Second Day of School). This time the girl was exhausted, or very bored. School can take it out of you.
Light and dark divided evenly for a day. Dark will take over from now on. And cold. This is the last outdoor party of the year. This year.
This seemed like a fun group. The gent with the fedora had a hatband with lights that fired off in sequence. I don’t know what they were talking about, but they all seemed to enjoy each other.
