While traveling in Italy some years back I learned to keep my eyes wide open and my sketchbook and pens at the ready. I didn’t travel with a camera, only my drawing pad.
These blue jeans were hanging outside a second story window. A quick simple sketch seemed in order.

    deceptively simple as ever
    there is a lowrey with a pair of triousers hanging out of a windowto dry.. a later work… not a matchstick men style… his very early work is remarkable in detail and quite a delight

  • I’ve been hung out to dry in many places… some are better than others… Italy has good sun….;-)))))

    I bet you could add a story to this :) It looks as though some Romeo was climbing from his lover’s window and fell out of his trousers :)

    seems when I compare the original with the card preview that the top and the folded side borders are both a lot smaller …

  • that’s how I see it , too… look at the the one of David statue… there it’s even clearer… ah, what ta do???
