Grading Exams in a Camper

Sketch of a man by Sarah Sullivan

Grading Exams in a Camper

Last night we sat in our camper, sharing a very small space, while Peter marked his midterms and I sketched. I liked watching his range of expressions as he considered each exam, particularly his delight, dismay, puzzlement, surprise, and approval. There was a lot of thinking going on as he graded and that was the most consistent expression I saw as he worked through the huge pile. I think his attention to the grading and what the results might mean is conveyed through his upright posture, tilted head, tight mouth, hands that hold an exam and pen, and his steady gaze.

This is a conte crayon sketch on multimedia paper.
