I went to Spain over Christmas. Saw a lot of great architecture, ate copious amounts of wonderful food, and walked my legs off with my gorgeous gal pal. Surprisingly I didn't get very much drawing done while I was there.
However I was inspired by the Picasso museum. He did a series of of continuous line drawings of the circus theme. Now from everything I've read about the man, I'm guessing this was one of his exercises in one ups man ship that he would spring on unsuspecting artists that would come to visit. "Yes you can draw, but can you do this?" and he would proceed to whip one of these out. This all conjecture on my part. But that aside, back at the hotel I tried my hand at it and whipped out a drawing of my girlfriend, and guess what?! She liked it! Ain't love grand?
