Sketchbook: Two Girls Conspiring
I had a lot of fun with this one. One of my favorite activities is going to a busy cafe, pub, restaurant - a place with lots of conversation and life. I like to pick a spot in the back where I can disappear with my sketchbook in hand.
Once I've blended in with my surroundings I like to start watching what is going on around me. I don't look too long at any one thing, just casually scanning everything.
If it is still going well and I'm still somewhat invisible, I like to pick a subject and start drafting a sketch.
These two girls were completely unaware of me - they were so lively and engaged in thier conversation, they were an easy target. I hope thier movement translated to paper well.
