Diamonds in the Rough

Sketching on the Washington Metro is fraught with unpredictability, manifested in many ways in such a dynamic setting. On a particular page in my sketchbook, I might end up with just a few lines of an individual before they move or get blocked, or simply find that a quick rendering of a body part is just not working out right. However, on pages like this, there eventually is that diamond in the rough; the one eyebrow or hand or elbow that I feel that I did a good job of rendering. Such was the case on this page; not much developing until I found some open space on the top right of the page and a nice set of crossed legs across the aisle, which made for my saving grace of the page.
