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.
