Sketching At The Library

It’s turned bitter cold again, killing hopes of a mild winter.  And at -33F I headed off this morning to meet Claudette at the library.  Somehow the walk was longer than normal.  I wonder why.

Done in Stillman & Birn Alpha (4×6) sketchbook, Pilot 78G and Noodler’s Lexington Gray ink

But we had a lot of fun sketching people at the library.  Library people tend to stay put a bit longer than museum people so there’s a better chance of finishing a sketch before they wander off.  I’m not much of a people sketcher but I thought I’d share a couple of the sketches I did this morning.  It’s ok to laugh… honest.  I wonder if the sleeping kid would have been embarrassed to know that he was snoring and that people were looking at him.

    Not laughing at all, I think they’re really good! But is it safe to go for a walk at -33F?

    • Not if you walk fast 🙂 It was hard on my cheeks but otherwise I’m pretty well bundled up. T-shirt, sweatshirt, vest, heavy coat with a secondary fleece coat as a liner. Hat (with ear flaps) makes me look like Nanuk of the North 🙂
