Saturday morning I went to the café to sketch as usual, but forgot my paints. Decided to leave the figures in black and white. I like the immediacy of drawing and painting on site and thought I might lose some of that quality if I painted later. I note my sketches are becoming more portrait-like as the weeks go by, which may or may not be a good thing. At any rate, it is what happens with me and a pencil and those people out there.
