Day 11: Easton Town Center (Halloween Store)

Ok, so I know I didn't show up at the MoJoe lounge but honestly I couldn't find it.  I'd never been to Easton Town Center and had no idea it was SO huge, and divided.  I kept driving around the different "sections" but when it started to feel like a waste of time I found the halloween store.  I thought it would be an awesome place to draw the decorations and try to capture their gesture.

Yes, I know it wasn't technically drawing from "life", but at the same time it didn't feel like I was drawing a still lfie either...  I was still trying to draw "characters".

I think the floor manager didn't like my presence there (got kicked out of one spot for blocking a shelf right as I was finishing the first drawing).  But I made sure to avoid blocking merchandise on the other ones so she left me alone.

I used black colored pencil.  I think it worked out for the subject matter.

  1. Kirsten,
    Good job - but yes - not really from life (more like 'from death') Good observations and good use of the side of the colored pencil to interpret value patterns. The last drawing has great variety in line weight and nice gesture.
