The first three portraits here were all done off the Sktchy App Photos (for iPhone). I don't know these folks, but I sure enjoyed drawing them.
I am using Copic markers and they are great for blending skin tones; and fun colors for backgrounds and clothing too.
This is Meral. I don't know her personally, however, I have drawn her multiple times now. She has such an expressive face for a young woman of 20.
And this is Laura. I like that all the "models" get back to me and let me know they like how I drew them. It is very reassuring.
And then of course I continue to draw at Starbucks about five days a week.
These ladies were enjoying glasses of wine at a live music concert we went to last weekend to hear the Old West Trio.
More Starbucks Stars.
I found these stickers of conversation bits at the thrift store and am having fun adding them to my art.
This was for a klass assignment to draw folks off the TV program I was watching. Whoopi Goldberg was a guest on the Van Jones show.
And then for another artist friend's challenge I was drawing with oil crayons using crazy colors blindly chosen!
Susanne Nason is a klassmate in Sketchbook Skool. She was seeing the portraits I was drawing and asked if I would draw her (again) I do believe we have drawn each other several times in the past. Susanne spends a lot of time on a sail boat and had a sunburned nose and shoulders. My Copic markers had lots of choices for pinks to give her this look. She likes it too.
Today we were once more at Starbucks and once more I used the stickers I got at the thrift store.
I also took my Copic markers to use on these.
I couldn't have said it better myself.
Actually that was a very sweet little baby. Maybe the "monster" is the phone she is on while holding him.
And this guy had a very scrawling face. I am sure he is a nice guy,
he just looks mad.
I hope you are having a good week.
If not look at lots of art
it will brighten your mood.
Wishing you a Creative Week Ahead.
