A little experiment in drawing draped fabric.

As I was looking around for something to sketch I looked down at the sketchbook in my lap. The light overhead created a sheen on the pant legs. Rather than getting up in search of something to draw, I just drew the pants.

As I mapped the pant leg on the right I wandered off into a fabric ravine and got disoriented. I forgot consult my compass, that is, the subject of my sketch. As a result, one pant leg is wider than the other. Which certainly doesn't reflect the actual anatomy of my legs.

(I later found a good site on drawing all kinds of drapery here.)

Every path has its puddle.
