Winnie The Pooh
When I travel with my wife she knows I love to draw. So we work out a way for me to get time to be alone to sketch. One thing I do is as we are doing touristy things together, I am also scouting great spots for me to draw. This way when Yun wants to go to the hotel and take a nap or go shopping, I can go and do a drawing at a place I've seen before. This takes away me wasting any time trying to figure out what to draw. I use my free time drawing and not wondering around trying to find just the right spot. Churchill is a good case in point. Yun and I went to Westminster Abby and I spotted this statue. In my head I liked it because I wanted to draw something dark, almost in silhouette. I liked just having faint details in the background behind it. The statue just struck me when I saw it. When I had some free time I ran right to that exact spot.
