Drawing The Sedentary

Drawing from life around the pool is drawing people sitting and reading or reclining and reading. The most life in action I could find was  these two reading in an upright position. Both drawings took less than fifteen minutes. Poolside readers fidget a lot UNLESS they doze off and don't move till it's time to eat. 

                  


                  



gave up on the pencil. Markers and ballpoint pen worked faster. 

After the frenzy of trying to catch the excitement of these poses, I went into the pool to bicycle on the swim noodle I brought with me to workout where I like to workout best.  My friend thought it looked obscene. I wondered about her. Is  this  photo obscene, or is she? I asked. She didn't answer. 

     


One more sunrise after this. Then we're moving down the street to our other favorite resort where the sunrises will look the same, a lot different than at home where the #9 gray skies just lift to a #4 value on a good day.  

CANCUN SUNRISE, MONDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2013, 6:13 (OFFICIAL) AND 6:16. 


    



     



AND 6:45. The iPad camera can only take so much sun.  Today looks hazy. Perfect for lazing around the pool and reading or photographing folks without them knowing. The iPad camera is great for spying. Everybody thinks you're reading.

  2. Was your friend drinking at the time she made the comment? lol or maybe she thought it obscene if she had done the same and gotten the comment she put on you... :-)

    1. She doesn't drink. One must have a sense of humor to travel life's highways.

    1. I'm taking lessons from you. Markers, a brush and a cup of water is best. Drying time between the lines is imperative.

    1. So obscene? :-)). Thanks Sharon. I think so too. My friend said it wouldn't be if the noodle was blue. Again, color is everything.
