At the Dentist

Sketching subjects can be anywhere you look! I was at the dentist’s office the other day, waiting for my son. I looked around for something to sketch and my eyes settled upon the Children’s corner. A large set of false teeth greeted me, pink as baby’s skin, as big as a melon. A giant toothbrush lay beside them. I resisted the urge to go and play with them. But they made interesting subjects. There was also an alligator toy with pretend teeth and boxes of blocks and books. I chose the most interesting and went for it. My son had hung his blue coat in the closet, and that stood out to me, a bright object against blacks and grays, so I decided to sketch that too. A -7 degree day greeted us, so a coat sketch seemed appropriate. This is a fun, whimsical sketch, and I like doing those every now and then!
