From My Sketchbook – Week 17

This past week when I was working on the sketch below, I nearly gave up and tore out the page since the face dimensions were quite off.  But one of the challenges I’ve given myself with my ongoing sketchbook project is to “make it work”…in other words, to find ways to salvage – if need be – whatever sketch I’m working on.  In the end, I’m glad I didn’t give up because I feel that there is a nice quality to the sketch.

Contemplative girlThis subject, also on the subway, caught my eye because of the androgynous hair styling and clothing.  Unfortunately, before I really had time to take a closer look, my subject was obscured by a subway rider who entered the car and ended up blocking my view.  And so this sketch was mostly completely from memory.

P.S.  I’m loving my new Crescent RendR No Show Thru mini sketchbooks!
