eyes...

...observational drawing is cool. while out in the sun last week, i sat in st. peters square or thereabouts and drew some people. the best ones to draw are the suits. they are always dressed, carrying something or other, talking on a phone and just talking in general in 'suit talk' which can be funny to listen to. they use words to baffle people and half the time, none of it ever makes sense. there were plenty of pigeons to draw and i should have drawn the trees and other things around me but i think the bigger sketchbook would have been better for that so next time i will be taking it with me. i am gearing myself to have a go at drawing actual people as i know the lions, minus there features, pretty much look like people now anyway and it is time to move on with my drawing.
