Deux paires de lunettes, des jumelles et un mariage

I saw many glasses on blogs and liked them, so I thought I would try to draw mine. I drew my cheap and really cool pair of sunglasses and my old and broken pair of glasses I use when I'm on the laptop.
The missing branch is not a mistake, it's really not there anymore. I have to keep my back and head very straight to keep the glasses on my nose, it's good for the posture...



While I was at it I decided to draw my binoculars. Had to look in the dictionary for that one. In french we call them "jumelles", that means "twins".

And then I decided to use some of the photos I took yesterday and draw them. It took me forever! I had a hard time and made a lot of messes with my friend's face... Still not happy with it but I give up for now! I had fun with the rest. I think I'll color the page, but I wanted a black and white copy because I'll try to make the faces better.




The car is an old Citroën Ami 8 and it looked so great!
My friend looked great too, before I tried to draw her...
Oh, and the hat, it's called a faluche. My friend and her husband met in a party organized by a student fun association called "les faluchards". They have these funny hats like the students had in middle age times, and they mostly party and have fun. It's not very well known in France, most people don't even know about it. (I didn't until I met Anne).

Oh you have been a busy artist! Your sketches are great, especially the "jumelles". I couldn't get the pictures to enlarge, but they look wonderful just the same!
