As mentioned in my previous blog post, I have been practicing sketching for an upcoming opportunity I may have. Each day, I pack my bag full of art supplies and head to different local coffee shops throughout the city.
You can often find me sketching away at the Starbucks on North and Wells, in Old Town Chicago, but I have also been people watching at locations on Rush Street and the intersection of Division and Dearborn.
My goal is always to sketch as many patrons as I can, as quickly as possible. I aim for this because it is the perfect practice for live events. During live events, I only have seconds to capture the moment. It is easy to lose the perfect picture, so it is essential to understand timing.
