Presidential Debate Sketches

Debate Sketches
quick pencil sketches

Friday night I sat with my sketchpad and tried drawing the presidential candidates while they were talking.   This was pretty tough to do, but it was helpful that they were stuck at their podiums.  I could start a sketch and know that their heads would return to something close to one of the positions that I had started to lay in earlier.  These aren’t great drawings, but I count them as a success because I stepped out of my comfort zone and allowed myself to do some really bad drawing.

The downside of this project was that I got so into drawing that I didn’t hear a word they said.  Oh well…
