Autumn Coat – Or What I Really Need

After sketching my autumn hat I found it a good idea to sketch my preferred autumn outfit including my duffle coat. Sketching the foreshortening of the boots was the most difficult thing.

By the way this duffle coat has a history. Last autumn I witnessed an accident between a car and a bicycle. Thankfully nobody was insured. The bicyclist was dressed in black and grey, which was not very helpful in a rainy dark autumn night. Possessing a black winter coat I promised myself that my next coat will be in a brighter colour. About a week later a shop opened on the way to my office. In the window it displayed a wonderful red duffle coat. Whenever I passed by I looked at it. Not that I needed a new coat, I wanted it. On the other hand I also wanted a new mobile phone. After some days of consideration I decided to spend the money for the new phone on the red duffle coat. Friday midday I bought the duffle coat. Friday evening my only existing mobile phone packed up completely.
