Welcome to my week in drawings. We'll start with today when we were in Starbucks in Dixon. Check out those huge cups on the wall behind the people. I have drawn this couple before. He never had a "bad attitude" before! They enjoyed a snack and then I moved on to the next couple ...
Please forgive my tiny off color joke here. I don't know what I was thinking, but I thought it and then I wrote it down. So in my mind this is what they were doing!
I am not sure if her computer gives her Visions or not, but I was more concerned about the woman who saw me at my art making and called what I was doing "Coloring!" I mean really, yes, I was coloring my drawing when she saw me, but I drew it first. It wasn't in one of those new fangled coloring books you can buy at every store on every corner you know. It was in MY ART JOURNAL~!
Okay, I am over it now.
As I have mentioned before a whole lot of people seemed to run their businesses out of Starbucks.
The guy on the right was definitely trying to sell something to the guy on the left!
A few days ago, oh it was just yesterday, we went to another town and had lunch. I drew the woman who I think is the wife of the owner or maybe she co owns the deli with her husband. I was especially happy to see the Chanukah decorations on the salad counter. They spelled it wrong, but I won't hold that against them. At least they had something for MY Holiday too.
Oh, I showed the sketch which I did in about three minutes to her afterwards and she really liked it.
Earlier we were in Barnes & Noble Café where I drew these people sitting across the room from me.
When I finished drawing them, a table freed up on that side of the room so I moved over there and drew this guy who sat down where I had been sitting earlier.
And then I drew the two regulars (on the far left and right) who come here to write on their laptops. The gal on the right was really tired that day, she kept yawning. I know they know I draw there, but they've never said anything or asked to see what I do.
I actually drew the new person in the middle first.
The day before that we were in our town and I went with my husband to get a sandwich at the German Bakery. At Christmas time they sell a lot of German baked goods. I used to buy Marzipan for my mother in law there and send it to her for Christmas. She died eight years ago. It made me think of her and remember how much she loved Marzipan. And how much we miss her.
The rabbit is made our of white mosaic tiles with some colored tiles for decoration. Someone had put a red wreath of fake flowers around his neck. He sits at the entrance to the bakery.
Meanwhile earlier in the week back at Starbucks I drew the people sitting right in front of me at the big table ...
... and this three generational family in the soft burgundy chairs.
I swear to God this guy brought in his TV set from home. It was huge sitting on his table next to his normal sized laptop.
I have no idea what he was doing.
Earlier still in the week we were at a different Starbucks in our town this time.
This gal was dressed to the nines in her black trench rain coat with faux fur collar, and nylons.
And these two dudes were writing something on pink sheets of paper! Baseball betting was my guess.
I was impressed to see someone reading a book. I've seen this guy before there reading. No one has secrets from me.
I drew him as soon as I sat down. I loved his look. I do have a penchant for men in beards with bald heads. LOL He could have been a member of my family, but wasn't. He left shortly after I finished him. I added the background around him after he left.
She was at the other Starbucks.
So that is day time drawings. At night I draw from photos on Sktchy App on my iPhone.
Here are the nine I did this week so far:
I really like drawing Meral. You've seen me draw her before. This time I took photos as I went.
She likes how I draw her and tells me so.
I am enamored by her mysterious look. She is only 20 years old,
but to me she looks like a much more mature soul.
After all that black and white I needed something with color! Boy did I find some to draw in her.
After which I needed to calm my soul with more Black and White. Ball point pen.
I see this as a successful week. Sketchbook Skool is posting a new class about developing a draw every day habit with Veronica Lowlor. She is a good teacher.
Check it out if you'd like to draw more too.
I don't feel I need to learn to draw daily, because as you can see I already do that.
However, there is always more to learn from these teachers so I will sign up for the class. It starts in January.
I'd love to see some of you there.
Thanks for coming by and leaving your comments which keep me drawing.
Have a Creative Week~
I just went to fifty two blogs (52) and left comments on all that would allow me to, a few didn't sorry. It took TWO HOURS.
I cannot do this every week.
I apologize to those of you who come here often
when I am not at your blog as well.
I love your art.
I will visit when I can.
There sure are a lot of amazing artists out there.
If you made it here I see that as a HUGE HONOR.
Thanks for taking the time.
