While my husband and my son went into the Portuguese fish shop on the other side of town to stock up on olive oil and spices, I stayed in the car to sketch these tomato-sellers that were right in front of me. They did great business - a constant stream of customers buying packets and boxes of tomatoes, that they restocked from their truck. As I wrote in the moleskine, I wish I could have drawn all the varied and colourful buyers that came along. I drew with my uni-pin fineline and added the colour, which I'd been making mental notes of as I went along, at home with the waterbrush and little Cotman set.
Why do young men have to wear their pants half-mast, with their big old boxers bulging out the top, I wonder?
