Fast sketch today

I’ve been thinking a lot about portrait work.  I'd like to do some portrait
drawing. But I’m not interested in painting people with masks, and in the
portrait sessions at my art club at the moment the models are wearing masks. That
makes sense because Toronto is in a period of spikes in coronavirus cases.

So I did a fast sketch of myself. I need to cut my bangs. I need to fix my hair before
my Zoom class tonight, but here’s the person I saw earlier today. She’s working hard
at being positive, and that’s a good practice in these times. So artists -- I miss you.
If you’d like a quick portrait sketch -- you can send me a photo of yourself, and I’ll
do one when I have time. No promises there (about when), but I love drawing faces.

Have a great day! In Toronto this is probably our last warm day, and people are out
and happy about it, wearing face masks, social distancing, and enjoying the beautiful
