enworld piece - I thought they forgot about me. color tonight
10 April, 2008
Kinda gaggy, I know. She had a very nice but too-juvenile profile. She loitered forever in front of the counter so I had a good view. Should have drawn her outfit, which was a very classy yellow cotton dress--looked like a nice couture piece, very summery in a nice broadcloth. But she was used to people staring at her, even at her very young age (17? younger?), and that took all the fun out of drawing her.
This lady had a great face that I only caught for a second and made these sketches from memory. They're not as far off as my commentary suggests--but still, nature is such a brutal master....
"O Lord, how can my humble work approximate thy glittering and multifoliate creation??"
