Sketches of people: Hospital waiting room, Mechanical pencil in Stillman and Birn Epsilon sketchbook
Hospital waiting room, quick sketch with mechanical pencil in Stillman and Birn Epsilon sketchbook
A couple of hours, nearly, in a hospital waiting room can be so boring - unless you use it as an opportunity to sketch. The waiting patients don't sit still, they constantly look around but do return to the same position so it's just a waiting game. This one didn't move his body at all but gazed here and there, so while his face was out of position for my drawing, I simply went back to sketching in the body. The minute he turned his head again I'd go back to add more to that.
Despair or tired? He smiled when called in to the doctor, so maybe just tired (that's the top of his balding head with the hood of his coat behind, you couldn't see his face at all)
