I’m not sure whether this would be considered a typical site in France or not. But here in Kernersville, we recently had our annual Spring Folly Festival. When my fellow artist friend, Debbie, and I went to draw downtown, I was delighted to see folks setting up the rides in Harmon Park. Color! Shape! Line! Fun!
I’ve imagined myself going to these festival events we have here and actually drawing on site while they’re happening. I realized as I sat there with hardly anyone around (and enjoying that fact!) that I’m not sure I’m cut out for drawing events like this. I’m not good in crowds. That is to say, hordes of people in small spaces are not my idea of fun. Hmmm…
Maybe I’ll stick to showing up a day early to sketch the set-up.
Or maybe, I’ll get brave someday and go and draw in the midst of the crowd!
Maybe in the morning…when there aren’t too many people yet. 🙂
