I often draw with a favorite XS (extra fine) pen, but on this first drawing I had a .05 pen that was much thicker in comparison. I liked it. In the past this much ink was intimidating to me. So I was pleased to discover that it no longer scared me to see such a bold line immediately.
I liked how it flowed and how that felt!
I of course painted it after I got home in the evening. The weather has been so nice that I enjoy sitting out on the patio before or after dinner to do the painting. This was drawn at Taco Jalisco's of course.
The second one was drawn at the Pure Grain Bakery. The people who look like couples were NOT sitting together. I just drew people from different areas and put them together.
The person on the far right was sitting outside my window. I studied him/her closely but sorry, I could not decide if it was a man or a woman. He/she was very androgynous looking.
Painting did not make a difference. In the end, I am betting it's just a guy with long hair reading a yellow book. I liked the guy in blue's sunglasses worn backwards under his cap in back. I also enjoyed drawing the heavy set woman in purple. And the red haired guys' curly hair. It's orange of course *just like my dear uncle Harry's "orange hair" even tho they used to call him "Red"! Go figure!
I used two different pens for this drawing. A .05 for the people in front. And an XS for the people in back. I thought it would help with perspective. Did it?
