Oh, and by the way, you hear an awful lot when you hang about a hotel lobby and are quiet as a mouse. Don't worry. What happened there, stayed there.
*Thoughts on the interior series: I'm glad I did these because I feel less disinclined to tackle interiors than I was before. Now I'll provide more context in my sketches of people in public places, for example. I rediscovered my Cretacolor crayon/pencils which is, in general, a good thing. I thought I'd use gouache more than I did. I'm glad I fell upon using an everyday office pen with waterbrush for washes (see the computer lab sketch and Return of the Thingy)---that was such a fun discovery. So cheap, so simple. As Detlef suggested in his comment below, I did lots more drawings than I posted. There were some awful clunkers, but wasn't that the point--to get better at something I wasn't very good at? There's no danger of my leaving home permanently for Interiors World, but I'm glad I spent a month there.
If you have thoughts on this series, I'd love to hear/see them in your comments. I have made a separate Interiors photo album. It appears on the left side of the screen with the other photo albums.
Coming in February--- Food, Glorious Food!
