Perspective Studies Are a Gamble

9/30/12 fountain pen (#1)
We spent a night in Vegas on our way to canyons in Utah. I’m not much of a gambler, but I found myself hypnotically dazzled by all the lights, sounds and perspective studies in the casinos. Relatively quiet at 7:45 a.m., a Seattle’s Best Coffee gave me my morning caffeine as well as an ideal view of a row of slot machines.
Initially interested in sketching the man lethargically punching a machine (#1), I soon realized that I had gotten the perspective all wrong. He gave up quickly, but I didn’t – I tried again with a brush marker (#2). The chairs were starting to look right, but then the tops of the machines were wrong. With only a few minutes to go before I was to meet the rest of my party, I think I finally got it right, this time in pencil (#3).
