Downtown Still, LA Art Walk

I went to Downtown LA’s Art Walk with Vanessa on Thursday.  We arrived a bit late, but fast moving and stationary people still filled the sidewalks.  Streams of holiday lights passed over the streets, connecting buildings on either side with their friendly and beautiful glow.  One of our stops was The Last Bookstore, an amazingly vast store with a second story labyrinth made of and filled with books.  After arting, we went to Bar 107 for some drinks and dancing.  I love that the DJ played a bunch of Clash.

As far as the drawing, I like how the image/subject hails Cindy Sherman (see below for more).

In this drawing, I let the holiday lights in the photograph show through.  I don’t yet know how to capture such intricacy with lines.

I’m gaining confidence when it comes to drawing faces.  I just need to treat their shapes more delicately.
