Capturing life's momentary events

Open wide

I sometimes sketch over my sketches. I do "blind contours" made popular by the book The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. You don't look at the sketch while you draw, you just focus on the thing you are drawing. What often happens is a very close resemblance, if a little lopsided. Still you'd be surprised.

This sketch was a composite of two sketches. I drew Ruth first, then the french fries. I ran out of room with the fries but continued anyway which resulted in it looking like she was eating all my fries (which she does).

Great fun this sketching stuff.
