I did this portrait last night while sitting on the patio of my favorite bar. Sometimes I think it is an unwise thing to sketch people who are heavy because they always seemed to be a little annoyed with the image you create. It is a natural reaction and one where I know I'd react the same way. Most of us (me included) carry around in our heads a self image of how we looked when we were very young. Personally, I found this woman to be very attractive regardless of her weight. I was also pleased with the results of this sketch. I finally had the nerve to work a little bit slower and to stare at my subject. Frankly, I'm uncomfortable staring at people especially since I seldom tell them I am drawing them.
