I took advantage of a smooth flight and an hour and a half of no interruptions to do a bit of sketching. After flipping through the United Hemispheres magazine I found this ad for the Ritz-Carlton Chicago penthouses with a nice pose of this woman and her dog. The arrangement itself is interesting, and I was in the mood to work on textures, and both the dog fur and the satiny sheen on the dress looked like good subjects.
I drew this one with a cheapo ballpoint pen in the same brown craft paper notebook that I took to Hawaii and Norway. I’m trying to be better about taking this notebook along with me when I travel, which means I’m gathering a number of drawings of people in airports.
