Moleskine Notebook Entry 4
It was my turn to make the dinner run this evening, so I decided to take my notebook and grab a quick sketch while waiting in the drive-thru lane. I wanted to sketch the scene as quickly as possible and finish it with watercolor when I got home. The goal was to practice simplifying the scene and to complete the drawing phase in 10 minutes or less. I figured it would take a while to get through the line since it was the dinner rush and several cars were ahead of me. I was going to call it “Drive-Thru Delay,” but my local Steak ‘n Shake was moving cars through at a lightning pace. I decided to call it “Drive-Thru Dash” instead.
I had to improvise the vehicles because the line was moving rapidly. The original vehicles in front of me were gone before I even got to sketch them, so I ended up drawing them from memory. Overall it was a great exercise, and I am pleased with the final sketch. Really had fun painting this one!
