Success is Meeting A New Friend from France and Drawing A Well recieved Portrait of her.

First Francoise drew me, an as yet unknown to me artist on Sketchbook Skool. And then she asked me to draw her back.


 This was my original ink drawing.


 
Then it was back to the usual day to day drawings at Starbucks. I love this woman's wardrobe coordination. Even her notebook matches. And her purse on the chair.



In my Klass with Veronica Lawlor we are using marks to denote size, distance, texture. I spent some enjoyable time doodling marks on this page.


And some quickies at yet another Starbucks morning out.




This guy I drew from his photo on Sktchy.



Some more assignments for klass: a building on site using thin and thick lines, straight and sensuous lines.

 
and for the prompt "breakfast" for "A Drawing A Day" challenge


More Starbucks Stars!



I love my coffee house peeps!




And more marks. I sure hope I get a good mark in this klass.


I hope you are having a creative week. Stay warm and safe where ever you are and draw like crazy.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your mark (comment) as it this that keeps me drawing.
