Louvre Sketch

Drawing time has been absent over the last few weeks.  We traveled to France and England, doing many touristy things and collapsing each night in a heap only to do more the next day.  I was able to take a half-hour at the Louvre to sit, watch people, and sketch the pyramid entrance to this vast museum.  It was a wonderful break in a busy and invigorating city.

Since we’ve been back in Turkey it has taken time to get settled but now I am drawing again.  I really need dedicated time and space to work.  It is another lesson I am learning about how I function as an artist.

A new comic will be up in a few days.  Enjoy.

    Nice! For some reason it reminds me of those drawings where the artist completes the entire picture without lifting his pen off the paper. I think it’s the outline of the building behind the pyramid. It’s a keeper.

    I love the pyramid at the Louvre.

    I just love people watching…at the Louvre, or anywhere else. Great drawing!

    I like that you’re holding hands with J. I’m also pretty envious of your ability to mix drawing with story-telling and humour.

    Thanks for the nice compliment, Deborah. Even though the couple in the picture isn’t us I like that you imagined it being the two of us. We did hold hands at the Louvre I am pretty sure…

    oh i imagine that must be a very interesting place to people watch given how many cultures must be represented among the visitors.
