The weather in SF Bay Area since the holidays has been pretty stormy and we had a bit of a cold snap with a rare snow occurrence down to about 500 feet in December. Lots of people bundled up for both cold and rainy weather, somewhat unpredictable. But Winter Girl is a constant, at least I hope she continues to be – making her appearance in a variety of places, only the past two years these Winter Girl sightings have been in grocery stores – not a complaint, just an observation.
I saw this lovely young lady in SF at the top of the stairs that leads into Whole Foods Market from the cafe/bistro below. She wore warm leggings, rough boots and had black flowing hair and gray-blue eyes. She reminded me of a cross between Megan Fox and Jennifer Connelly. I would have at least said “Hi” as I passed, but she was on her cell phone and deep in conversation. But her memory lives on in this year’s drawing.
I used AutoDesk Sketchbook Pro 4.1 for this one. I like the fact that you can rotate the canvas and now has some good ruler and ellipse tools in the new version. It also allows you to work with layered Photoshop files where before, you could only save out in that format.
