Solo Drinker

This drawing was done at the same time as yesterdays post, I was leaning against the bar at the same spot. That's brings me to an interesting point about McSorley's (to me anyway) it's the only bar I can think of that doesn't have bar stools. I'm think about combining these two studies into on panoramic scene.

Really doing great shadow work, is that from lurking in the shadows during youth?

I can see these two sketches in one scene. Even though them seem emotionally miles away, the environment brings them together. No stools, more people at the bars I guess and an easier scene to draw.

Hey, I want to be in one of these McSorely drawings! Then you can see how it feels to have someone staring back at you with a sketchbook of their own...

The moods you get in these studies are amazing, so real- I can feel the intensity of your keen observation!

I really enjoy getting your comments, thank you all so much for taking the time. So many bars so little time.

I am now an avid fan of you bar sketches!You have an amazing talent for capturing mood and light. I am in the midst of a real 'block'at the moment with nothing produced for days now, you have tempted me out of the doldrums to get out to the local pub and get stuck in! (In a creative way, not to drown my sorrows!)
