Odd Characters, Family of 3, by Elaine (jaguarish)

This is another drawing from memory.  I saw this family of three on my morning walk from the train station to my office.  First the lady's shiny red jacket caught my eye, and then I got intermittent glimpses of extensive tattoos on her ankles and feet.  Unfortunately her long skirt only gave me glimpses as she walked along, so I couldn't include them in the drawing.  After walking along behind them for several blocks trying to get a better look, I realised these three were a family despite their assorted appearance and oddly indifferent attitude to one another, maintaining a stranger's distance from each other and speaking not at all.  Today was the first day of school across Brisbane so I imagine this is a mother walking her son to school, with the other son dressed very casually who must have a different school or start date (most Australian kids wear school uniforms).

  4. Thanks all, I replied to this earlier but it seems to have disappeared into the ether... just can't do things on here with my smart phone, I think! Anyway your comments made me think about how I draw from memory, and I put my conclusions into my next post... http://lynnnonameblog.blogspot.com.au/2015/01/odd-characters-fortitude-valley-by.html
