My Busy Week Drawing in LIFE!

On Monday I met with a fellow Sketchbook Skool Klassmate, Janice L-h, who lives nearby me to draw in Vacaville. We met at Tacos Jalisco for lunch, shared our art journals, then went outside to draw the town.
(I had to go to the bank first to finish up our Living Trust business, but now that's done!)

We both drew the mansion on Buck Avenue ...

... and then I drew the Opera House while Janice drew the bell tower. It was so kool when the bells tolled for us while drawing there on the streets of Vacaville.

The weekend before I went to meet up with some East Bay Sketchers to do some live figure drawing.
This was a first time experience for me and I really enjoyed it. I will go back again to do more.

After three hours of drawing there I met my husband for lunch and we drove to the marina in Emeryville where I drew the scene there. The park was full of sun bathers!

 ... and the San Francisco skyline ...

Earlier in the week I got to do some Starbuck drawings per usual, but there is always a story to be told there:

And then I added this bright bowl of fruit for my other blog: Paper, Paint, Pencils & Pens. You can join us there to draw too if you like. We change the theme every two weeks. All drawers are welcome.

Happy Paint Party Friday too!
Thanks for stopping by, I love seeing you here and getting your comments/feedback about what I am drawing.
Have a creative week!
