This is a larger size painting than I am used to doing. I usually draw and I am scared of painting. When I have painted I have usually restricted myself to tiny sizes or just portraits. This is my first attempt at a real crowd scene or any scene at all. (I am tempted to redo the foreground doctor, to make him less cartoonish and more realistic, but for now, I will keep him as originally done. However, I don’t like the illustration quality of this painting, and want to learn how to be more painterly, so to speak!)

I mostly drew this photo because I wanted to understand the mechanics of how to draw a crowded room, which I haven’t done much of before. It made me nervous so I simply forced myself to make mistakes and do it with permanent markers that gave me no option but to work with whatever I did “wrong”…
