Before a Show

Before a Show

On the rail wall on the River Thames. Watched them from above at the Globe.
I took a break today and sketched from more references of this summer’s trip to London.

High Behind a Wall

High Behind a Wall

I could have been capturing views Notre Dame. It was there high behind the stone wall. Instead I captured them looking over the wall.
From a visit to Paris this summer.

Contrasting Moods

Contrasting Moods
Two sketches of “RD”, from bold to wimpy lines. The mood changed between the morning pose and the last pose later in the evening, both his and mine.
Morning: 24”x 18” graphite
Evening: 9”x 12” fountain pen, chalk and oil sanguine on toned grey paper.

After scratching the surface
I think they noticed me
His face appeared first
She was preoccupied

More lines across the surface
Soon the attention was on me
They stopped
They moved
Toward me
On the page

Doodles while waiting to be noticed.
