Something On His Mind

I took a trip to my college's library today to sketch. I'm really surprised that I got as many good drawings as I did; it was really pretty dead in there for a while. At least three or four different people sat down at my table, right in my line of vision, when there were three other tables empty. I was starting to wonder if they *wanted* me to draw them.

So the library is my new drawing location. With as much spare time as I'm going to have this spring, I should end up with a lot of drawings. I should probably buy a new sketchbook tomorrow. The one I'm using now is almost full.
Anyway, here are some of the sketches I did today:

"Georgia On My Mind"...(literally.)
I did these two drawings separately, and they ended up connecting. I didn't realize until later that it looks like the man has a woman growing out of his head.
But I like it this way.

Most of the people in the library were on computers.

This guy was further away than the others, so I couldn't get a very detailed sketch of him. I like this, though; it reminds me of the quicker sketches I did of people back in high school.

Some quick sketches of the staff that were milling around. The woman on the bottom left was answering the phone.

New Stuff

A couple new sketches:

I should be getting more sketches done now that winter break's over. I'm going to have a lot of time to kill between classes this semester, so I'll probably spend it drawing in the campus center or cafe.

I'm working on a new painting right now, too, but I don't have any pictures to post yet. I'm working all weekend, so I might be able to finish it then.

No new pictures to post today, but I took digitals of all my paintings this morning in the sunshine and updated old posts with the better photographs. So Megan, Margaret, and Tess are all better quality pictures now.
