Day 22 in the 30 in 30 Days Challenge
My personal goal for this challenge - to paint only
what I have never painted or thought of painting before.
I went to the dentist in Juarez, Mexico, on Monday
(saving money!) and as we waited in the line of cars to
cross back over, we watched many individuals selling wares
of great variety. This young pregnant woman cleverly
carried fruit on her head. She had netting over it
to keep it all from falling out of the ingenious little
shelf/hat she had made. I presume she had more
fruit in her bag. It took us more than an hour in line
so I happily kept drawing different people. After crossing
the border for 8 years to see this dentist I now
have enough sketches to paint a series from them.
Hope a drawing counts for this challenge. True to my own
goal I have never drawn a person carrying something
on their head before.
It is the first time I have used a pen to sketch with in the car.
Usually I count on something I can erase - like a pencil!
The marks you see under the drawing are an erased
pencil drawing from a previous attempt. I liked the subtle
difference it added to the paper.
