Wait! I Don't Do People!

As a general rule, I avoid people.

Sketching them, that is! Especially out in public where you usually find people. LOLAM! (Laughing Out Loud At Myself!) I'll sketch a tree, a door, a window, a building, plants, even a dog, but a person? No, thank you! I think about sketching people. I even go so far as to sketch them in my head.....so what happened that was different this time?

This gal had a thing for her hair–it was very much a part of her identity. It was also quite breezy and she kept flicking it out of her face as she was trying to eat her lunch. The dark shades helped because I didn't have to try the whole face. I caught a decent "impression" of her in just a couple of minutes, but it's not an actual portrait. She was much prettier and with a lot of personality that I didn't capture correctly, but I managed (finally!) to sketch a person in public that looks like the individual!! Woohoo!

Okay, who's next?!!
