"The sight of these poor revelers appeared to interest the Spirit very much, for he stood with Scrooge beside him, in a baker's doorway, and, taking off the covers as their bearers passed, sprinkled incense on their dinners from his torch. And it was a very uncommon kind of torch, for once or twice when there were angry words between some dinner carriers who had jostled each other, he shed a few drops of water on them from it, and their good humor was restored directly."
I struggled with finding the area of focus in the image, showcasing the crowd first and Scrooge second. Still, I enjoy drawing so much that it's hard to resist detailing every nook and cranny at the expense of a central point of conversion.
