We started out sketching in the Goose's bakery/cafe . . .
Then I moved to the front where I had a view of the checkout lines and got a good start on a sketch . . .
. . . when I spotted this lady in a great hat and red cape at the checkout counter looking like a character from a spy novel . . . a truly colorful character. Sketcher's panic attack! I had to sketch fast - but I wasn't fast enough. She was picking up her grocery bag and preparing to leave! I made my move . . . I walked over and smiled and asked her to sit for the sketchers. I gotta lotta nerve.
She said yes! She put down her groceries and her purse and picked up a book. The sketchers went nuts!
Thank-you, Ona! You were an incredible model. (This sketch was from a photo Sherryl took - great angle - had to sketch it. Note to self - sit on the floor and look up next time you have a willing model.)
