Drawing to paint

Not much time to paint today.
I have a couple of photos from my recent
travels that I'm thinking about turning into
larger paintings.

I did this little drawing tonight to consider
whether or not I'm going to paint this
couple.  I met them at an art opening and
like the mood the photo captures.
The woman with her arm around her more
flamboyant wife (wearing the faux fur boa and
blonde wig) felt protective.

I'm drawing from a not great photo taken
with my phone.

Have a loving all that you see day.

I love the line work in your sketch Barbara and I think it would make for a great painting. I'd love to see that flamboyant faux fur boa!

Hi Wendy,

It may be a painting one day. My reference is not very good, and I am enthusiastic about my large breakfast themed painting.
