Happy Thanksgiving


Welcome to my week of drawings. I did a lot of portraits this week.  Eleven from photos on the Sktchy App and two from photos of on line friends.


I drew this woman last week in black and white. She has such a soulful face.

 
And this little guy had such a cute expression.

 
She looks exotic to me.

 
And she had such interesting lines.

 
Jens had such a beatific smile for someone in the hospital.   I hope he's okay.

 
I look for interesting poses and her squeezing her lips together really got my attention!


I loved her hat and glasses!

 
 I enjoy drawing people from different cultures.


And different racial backgrounds.


She didn't really fall down, but I had to give her a story as she sat in the middle of this path.


And here she is again. A truly beautiful young woman.


Harold is an online artist friend who had a birthday this week. I felt like drawing him and wishing him a happy day. He's an Urban Sketcher too and draws in Chicago while I'm drawing in California.


When Jaimie saw it (another online artist friend) I could tell by his response he'd like one as well so I drew him too. He liked it.

 
I continued to draw all week at the coffee houses and made stories out of the scenes I came upon.








I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed drawing them.


Sometimes I draw more men than women...




And other times there are more women than men ...



Or one of each.
 

I leave you with a flower from my garden as my Thanksgiving Bright Wish to you. I am grateful for so many things. I like looking at the bright side of life. This flower and a garden full of others like it help that be so.

 
Thank you for coming by.
Have a Creative Week.
Be good to everyone around you.
And I hope they are equally good to you.
 
I appreciate your comments as they
Really Do Keep Me Drawing!
See you next week!
