EDM #36 draw out in public

Its that time of year when all of us women need to go get their mamograms. I try and do it at the beginning of each year, it gets it out of the way and starts the year fresh. As I was sitting in the waiting room, I decided to draw the women reading sitting across from me. I still feel uncomfortable drawing people when they don't know, I would probably feel worse if they knew! I would hate for them to say "Oh, let me see how I look!" and then I would have to recesitate them after they see what I drew! So I try and do it incognito, but its hard to draw something without really studying it. I find that I am assuming where the line should be so I don't have to stare at her chest! That kind of thing. I found a blog where the guy drew the people on the subway, oh my, was he great. He was able to capture them perfectly, although many were sleeping, that always helps.

This is pretty good, considering you weren't feeling able to look that closely. It looks very well observed. I get a real sense of character from the sketch. Also her expression shows that relaxed concentration that comes from reading.
