Track Meet




7"X5" Graphite on paper



I didn't have time to paint today because I went to an indoor track meet with my sons. I took my sketchbook along because I thought it would be a great opportunity to do some figure studies. I had forgotten that from the gallery the runners are so far away as to be almost invisible. So I mostly contented myself with the spectators. I actually really enjoyed drawing them, they tend to sit still and by painting them from behind I rarely had to worry about faces. I did a few of these, I may post some more later in the week if I get desperate.
