Yesterday I showed you some coffee shop victims who fled the scene before I could finish them off. Here are a couple victims who gave me a little more time and the luxury of graphite.
The man in the broad-brimmed hat was chatting with a couple of friends, so I knew he’d be there a while. The special treat he gave me is the one-quarter profile, which I find to be the most challenging view of the face.
The man in the puffy down jacket is the same man I showed yesterday when I drew him while he waited in line. It turned out that he sat right in front of me and stayed long enough that I could examine his jacket’s texture at length. Those puffy jackets are a fascinating study of light and dark; the fabric is smooth and shiny, and it crinkles where it’s sewn. I see so many of them around town that I think sketching a series of them would make a good winter project!
