Spring break is allowing me the time to catch up with schoolwork, and this morning as I am trying to break down some calculus exercises, a jackhammer is literally being used in the hall outside the apartment.
I decided to take a break.
I took a couple of pens and my 4 X 3 Pentalic Traveler Pocket Journal to the cafe around the corner.
I found a spot where I was hoping to get an interesting subject for a sketch. Then a small family sat at the table right next to me. They were eating a couple of bread-type items, and the baby in a stroller was being entertained by cartoons being provided by his father via his iPhone, while the mother was entertaining herself with her own iPhone on the table top.
They were there for about five minutes and left as quickly as they came.
As I was hoping for another interesting scene, a group of four occupied the same table as the family that just left. Very interesting faces, but my position was compromised, as I was occasionally being glanced at by one of the gentlemen in the group.
I switched my position and noticed a group of youngsters playing chess at the back of the cafe.
I usually like to add washes of color, but I did not take my colors with me, so I may add later, so I may update this post later. In the meantime, the first was sketched with the Pelikan m800 with an extra fine nib, loaded with Platinum Carbon Black. The second was sketched with the Pilot Custom 812 with a fine nib, also loaded with Platinum Carbon Black.
Thank you for visiting!
See you later!!
