I really liked the energy of the waitress. She was everywhere and on top of it all. I caught her industry in the swing of her body and the focus of her attention as she squeezed through tables. But I confused this message when my attention shifted to the couple on the right. They caught my attention and before I knew it I made them the focus of this story by emphasizing their body language through the use of strong line and color.
I was thinking about the ambient light and trying to capture the heat of this very hot day. I did this by using orange for skin tones and the garden wall. Perhaps I should have added in shadow but it was already a very busy sketch.
