“Dia de Marcado Viernes; 2:00 2/3/2017  Patzcuaro, Michoacán”

In the Plaza Gertrudis Boca Negra, just a few doors from our hotel, every day is Market Day.  On the day of this drawing, it was the official Market Day.  Capturing all the activity: color, sounds, smells, hustle & bustle……was a challenge.  It was particularly so because the people were very friendly and curious.  Usually people left us alone as we drew, but here the people liked to look over our shoulders and ask us about our drawings.  Having so much attention, in addition to expressing the mood/atmosphere of the square was a bit daunting.  When I could finally immerse myself into the scene and my drawing, I was able to record my experience.
