An Arty Artful Week

Welcome to my art filled week. Be grateful that I actually have not posted everything I drew this week. There was a challenge called #OneWeek100people something like that, and I wasn't going to join in then half way through the week I found myself seeing how many people I could draw at Starbucks in one hour and I drew 52 of them! I know, a lot. And since I had drawn a good number already that week I only had to draw 13 more to make 100. So I did! But I haven't posted them.
Just too many art journal pages.

Instead, some of my usual faire:

These fine folks at the coffee shop ...



and these ...


And then of course there is the nightly Sktchy Portrait, this night there was a photo of four women all laughing and having a grand time. I got three of them in this portrait ...


And the forth one on another night. Aren't they lovely though?


And then back to the coffee shop every morning but Tuesdays, as I have clients on Tuesday.


I finished another art journal with these fine folks.


And started the next new one with these ...


And these ...


I love finding fun expressions on the Sktchy folks photos to draw! She liked this one.


For International Women's Day I drew Malala also on Sktchy. She is such a dynamic young woman.

 
And today I finished up at Barnes & Noble Café where I quickly drew my regular gals there,


and these two sitting alone.  I did find a nice spirial art journal on sale for my littlest grand daughter, with a picture of the girls in Frozen on it's hard cover. Was glad I noticed this 50% off sale sign in the window when I was drawing or I might have missed the good deal.



Oh, and then something quite funny happened. As you can see on the right page I started to draw a woman who was sitting there, but I had only drawn this one small line of her head when she got up to leave. I told my husband of my frustration, when he said the things on the left page which got me laughing so hard I thought I was going to loose it completely. It's nice having a humorous husband.

Wishing you a Creative Week. Thanks for Stopping by and please know that your visits and comments do keep me drawing!

    1. I thought 100 in a week a ridiculous challenge! Then I realized I could do fast face and some fast body sketches one after the other with surprising ease! So yes I surprised myself!
      And yes, we keep each other laughing a lot of the time!

  13. Lynn, you of all people should make the challenge of 100 people fly by. lol I did the challenge too. It was fun and I finished in 4 days only because I went to the DMV for the last day and there were just so many great characters. I could have done 100 there. Great week of sketching!!!

  14. Sorry I'm so late but I've had this and that to do. Today eye brows, very important :)
    I forget my future dentist visits when I visit here - your sketches make me smile.
    By the way, my dentist is new for me, prosthetic specialized, he's nice and gentle :)
    Keep on sketching, make us smile!
    ps. do you get discount in those cafes you sketch? :) You should!

    1. I'm glad you are smiling because of my art people! No discounts, but then I rarely drink or eat anything there! I used to get free lunches at the Mexican restaurant I drew in for several years.
