A drawing in two parts

We were out on Easter Saturday and because our regular coffee spot was closed for the holiday we opted for an alternative venue. Ah new scenes to draw. Out came the trusty pen (Lamy Safari) and ink and the somewhat dodgy pen (Duke 209). My attention was caught by the plane tree framed by the cafe door. I also liked the people sitting on the right. So far so good. Then I thought I’d better capture the person on the left before they finished their snack and left. I realised too late that I’d drawn the person on the left at the wrong scale.

I couldn’t resist a little tweak using Photoshop to enlarge the figure on the left to get an idea of how the drawing might have turned out.

Re-jigged on Photoshop, the figure on the left enlarges to a more realistic scale.

I’ll console myself with the old saying that “the only person who’s never made a mistake is the person who’s never done a thing”.
