We had planned to head out on the Columbia River for a couple of days of boating/sailing. However, Sunday presented a cloudy day with some rain. Fall is fast approaching in the Pacific Northwest so I went downtown to the mall to sketch.
First stop was the food court with the thought in mind to slow down. I find that hard to do when people get up and leave all the time. Sometimes you can pick someone who looks like they have settled in for at least two minutes. You will see a couple of heads on these pages. People I started and they just left. The color was added at home.
After a while I moved further up the mall near Starbucks. Once again I tried to slow down. I had the opportunity to spend a more time on the woman sitting down with the feet to the side. In the second sketch there was a long line at Starbucks and the gentleman with the green shirt and stroller stood there for at least 4 minutes.
This last sketch is my favorite. Although she is wonky and out of shape I am pleased with the capture of her elbow and foot in motion.
Thanks for looking. Have a good week.
