Meanwhile, back in that crazy, found it cheap at a thrift store art journal, with spirals at both ends; NEVER AGAIN. It's a huge waste of time to flip back and forth from two sides, and pages get bent! It may seem "cool" at first, but in all honesty, it's a pain in the be-hind!
But I will probably use it to the bitter end just because it's started ...
I drew this couple and her mother (I'm guessing it's her elderly mom) sitting next to her, at the Pure Grain Bakery last Thursday.
Drew in ink first, whipped out my colored water soluble pencils and colored it there.
Added water from my drinking cup and painted it there too!
Indoor Plein Air Painting!
My new thing.
You can see SPRING out side the large windows!
This I drew there too. The guy was sitting directly in front of me. The gal was sitting way across the room by the windows. The door is in between those two places closer to being in front of the guy...
Both were alone. I brought them together. Now in case they were lonely there, they are not lonely anymore. I always wanted to be a matchmaker!
I painted it using my small watercolor kit back at my office before my first client of the afternoon showed up!
Two entirely different looks, colored pencils, and watercolors! Any preference?
After lunch we went to a new Deli (for us) in this town 15 minutes away from home. It was packed to the rafters with people, mostly men, eating lunch and talking. I got out my pen and pad and quickly sketched the people around us. I mean fast, as in five minutes or less, before our sandwiches arrived!
I like this fast style of drawing. It's only a little faster than what I do already. Maybe this is what they call Contour drawing?!
Painted with watercolors (people) and gauche (background) at home later!
Linking up with Sunday Sketchers !
Thanks for your comments, they are much appreciated!
Have a creative week!
