Art on Paper and Art in the Garden!

I start this week with a Sktchy guy in my big ledger art journal ...

And jump to Starbucks peeps having their experiences as I interperate them ...

(sorry these are a bit blurry which happened when I transferred them here from my phone)

... And back to Sktchy portraits ...

... And back to Starbucks... 

We visit a variety of them! 

Exciting event of the week was getting a call from a Sketchbook Skool Klassmate, who was visiting family in a nearby town from across the country! Hannah Six and I spent a wonderful day together! 

I drew her ... 

... And she drew me ...

... And I drew her again!

We went out to lunch and drew there too! 

Earlier Hannah and I shared art journals and I drew her!

My dear husband read his book and waited patiently ...
It was a great meet up! Thank you Hannah! Let's do it again before too long.

Later in the week I went back to a different Starbucks to draw!

This I drew copying style of Hudderwasser, an Austrian artist, whose work I admire! I did this sunset for my other blog, Paper, Paint, Pencils & Pens.

First strawberry in my garden was so delicious!

My favorite flower, they are growing more profusely !

Meanwhile back to drawing ...

These two were an experiment in drawing with paint first then pen!

Same couple as above, but pen first then paint! 

Another Sktchy guy! My husband is getting jealous of all the guys I am drawing! LOL

And a few more garden shots and that's my week to date! 

Wishing you a wonderful week! Be creative! It brings me joy! Thanks for stopping by, your wonderful comments keep me drawing! 


  1. A great variety Lynn! You seem to really be challenging yourself. I noted a few different positioning of your people....a little different than usual. All so fun! Love the photo of you Hannah and the fun portraits you came up with! Thanks for sharing your always creative weeks!!
