Jim and Shirley

Tony, an old friend who I haven't seen for a year or two, starts telling me that he's now using the 'carrot method' to add figures to his drawings. A quick carrot shape can form the basis for a figure; particularly useful in a subject like the café he once drew when he needed to populate a scene with figures quickly.

He demonstrates. I'm not convinced; I'm drawing the attractive young woman on the opposite table and, no, she isn't shaped like a carrot.
