Quiet time at the library

I spent a quiet couple of hours in the library sketching between reading. Just little portraits of people in the library: Thinking, listening, reading.  The quiet of the library affects how I work: Slowly, and more precisely ( well, at least comparatively).



And between it all, I sketched a little detail from a piece by one of my all-time favorite artists. His pieces are so beautifully composed, with dark and light shapes fitting together like an intricate jigsaw puzzle.library5.jpg

And more library portraits, this one my favorite from the day.library1

Libraries never cease to amaze me. Even the littlest neighborhood has a library with thousands of books. We’re lucky here in the Unites States to have such easy (and free) access to so many books.

    Your sketches are lovely, what strikes me most is the movement of your lines, it brings such great life to the image.

    Beautiful work Suhita! I too am a big fan of Lautrec’s work. I’ll put libraries on my list of places to draw on a rainy day!
