Sketching Makes Anything Better
Uncomfortable situation two: Front row - enough said.
How to deal with this dilemma? Draw.
Now I create uncomfortable number three: I usually draw in pen with watercolor for shadows/finish work, a little cumbersome considering #2, so I grab a nub of a water-soluble graphite from the bottom of my bag and proceed to draw the Mary statue above the alter, on the paper they so nicely gave me on my way in. Small pencil, same paper we all are holding, perfect.
With the strong light and my close angle her face is all deep shadows and I loved that she looked a bit creepy.
Perfect remedy to #1 on the list.
