This was an efficient waiting room. I had to sketch very quickly.
Yesterday, I posted a series of small, quick studies of a young lady reading her cell phone in a waiting room. Below is a more careful sketch of the same person.
Sometimes people wait in isolation. Others wait in groups, as this trio below.
People in waiting rooms for eye doctors generally fall into two categories: dilatees and those waiting to drive them home. Below is a portrait of the latter.
The gentleman across the way was wearing the sharpest shirt and trousers I have ever seen. And I do mean sharp! I don’t think that his clothes were starched, or they would have cracked when he moved. I was thinking about working some more on this drawing. I would concentrate the straight lines of the […]
At first I lightly sketched the figure. I don’t know why, but I always seem to start with the arms. I also spend time on the head tilt and its relationship to the shoulders. I finished with enough time to include some of the furniture, and to darken the lines of the woman. I’m pretty […]
I sketched the man while he and his wife were waiting. I did not know who had an appointment until the lady got up and left when her name was called. The man remained in ‘couple mode’, his legs together, as if respecting the space of his now-absent wife. Across the room was another figure, […]
I sketched this scene with a pencil that was harder than the one I used yesterday (4B used yesterday, HB used today). Making easy-to-see marks with a harder pencil takes more pressure than it does with a softer pencil. I don’t work well with harder marks, so the drawing below is not that easy to […]
I saw this couple adorable couple in the waiting room. They were very cozy, and I had a long time to draw them. I even took some time to render the plant. Another man sat down next to them. He was only there for a short time, so he is just a sketch.
The man in the shorts was brave. He joined us in the waiting room at about 6:30 in the morning. Just the thought of cold naugahyde on my bare legs is enough to make my skin crawl. There were others waiting as well, so I had a chance to practice my face sketching.
