A QuickDraw is a timed event. From start to finish it's just two hours to make magic happen on site. The thing I had not practiced for was the shoppers totally, completely blocking my view as I worked. I normally have a planned approach to my drawings but today I had to draw in pieces, back and forth, all over the place. Factor in the event folks did a good job letting folks know art was happening in the farmers market so not only was my view obscured, I was constantly interrupted. Oh goodness. I kept telling myself to go faster, faster, faster. The clock was relentless. Time ran out while my work was still in the mid-tone mumble stage but I will say I did better than my first time in the quick draw a couple years ago. I have some ideas for improvement for the next time. I'm looking forward to it.
