A very quick sketch today… sometimes it is best to catch someone while they are absorbed and not aware of being drawn. While this angle doesn’t show much, it’s nice to explore different views of the face.
UPDATE: New Pushkin sonnet from Tom!
Sometimes I get this funny feeling
that someone’s watching in the wings
just out of vision’s circle, stealing
glimpses of some hidden things.
Perhaps it’s my imagination
but it plays hob with concentration
when I feel I’m being watched
by a hunter, arrow notched.
Who knows what lurks on darkened paths
that lie beyond the realm of sight
encapsulated by the night:
the western star’s eternal baths.
There’s something watching me, I’m sure,
behind the veil of night obscure.
