So far the nor'easter is bringing us mostly rain and sleet...enough to make a bit of a mess. Luckily it stopped doing any precipitation for my walking buddies and myself to get in 5 miles this morning.
Since it was just drizzling here around 11:00 I headed out to Panera Bread in Bohemia to do some sketching for the 100 People Challenge. The problem with Panera Bread is that you mostly see the backs of the people on line, so I was searching for anyone who was turned slightly or facing me for some reason. I started with the woman on the top right, sketching her with my Elegant Writer pen, but I didn't like the way it was working in a small sketch. It muddies up the color. So then I switched to my Lamy Safari with the brown ink, which was also a problem because of the ink bleeding. My last choice was a waterproof Uniball gel pen. It has an extra-micro point which was a little delicate for the drawings. Once I added the watercolors I went back in with more ink. I did fill two pages in my sketchbook and have now completed 93 people!!! I debated if I should do 7 more people to finish, but I know me, if I did 7 I would force myself to complete the entire page, and I was getting bored with the location. I ended up leaving and will finish tomorrow. #OneWeek100People2018
As far as the storm, we are now having snow (big flakes) that are sticking everywhere, so we may end up with an accumulation yet.
