Smiling Tourists or posing for Google Earth – Watercolour/Ink in a small Watercolour Moleskine

My entry for February’s Challenge. Its hard, for me, to draw, without reference sketches, these people all looking upwards. I should have remembered the game we played as children. You stand, in the street, staring upwards into the sky. It is guaranteed that most passers by will follow your gaze to see what you are looking at. I wonder if this theory will work for other situations? I’m going to try standing with a large pair of binoculars staring into the far distance and ask a friend to observe folks’ reactions. If you don’t hear from me soon it means I’ve been arrested.
