Quick sketches during meal times

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 2:32 pm

Eat the food as usual, do not rush or stop.
Meanwhile, carefully survey the surroundings to spot potential drawing subjects.
Find someone who looks interesting (to you) and is likely to remain stationary for a sufficiently long period of time.
After finishing the food, adjust your position so that you can observe the subject in a good angle while reducing the chance of being noticed.
Draw freely without worrying about mistakes.

Lunch time guests tend to be more normal and stay shorter.

Dinner time guests tend to be more diverse, especially later into the night, and some might hang on for a while working or reading.
