Five Guys and Jazz...Lunch Later

 Four guys listened to jazz, the fifth guy blew numerous horns making beautiful music in our Town Square on Wednesday. I and many others got to sit and enjoy live music on a warm and balmy summer day. This is the second time I have drawn this particular musician.

The next day I painted them using just a few select colors.



Later I enjoyed a nice lunch at the German Bakery on the square. Pure Grain bakes their own breads and I have become enamoured of pumpkin seed rolls.



Again I chose just a few colors to bring this drawing to life.  That turquoise was the color of that plastic glass for my water.

I am posting this on Sunday for Sunday Sketchers. You can see more of those good artists by following the icon on my sidebar. (the big tree).  Thanks for stopping by here and for your comments, they mean the world to me!

  5. Great sketches. I can now see the colors. Was wondering where the turquoise was as it didn't show in my limited colors on my monitor this morning. Now I can see it. Well done as usual.

  6. I think you should have been with me today. I went to an English village where a brass band played on the green and we drank tea and ate scones! Your sketchbook would have been filled to overflowing!

  7. I always marvel at those who can draw on-the-spot scenes. The jazz drawing and lunch drawings are wonderful. I really like the lunch menu too:)

    I looked up your art entry in Seth's book. The story behind art piece was intriguing. I love how we can "mark" ourselves through our art.
