Welcome to My Weeks Worth of Drawings

Starting with the most recent, I drew today at the Napa Deli where we eat lunch often on Thursdays.
I am in a challenge with Sktchy to draw every day in April called Sktchy30 and today, day 6, the idea was to draw minimally. Other people obscured my full view of this couple so I literally drew just what I could see. Thus my minimal drawing.
 





 


Earlier in the day we were at the Barnes & Noble Café where I drew this woman with her back to me. She had lovely braids and/or extensions in black and gold in her hair. I chose not to use a gold color as I feared it would get muddied by the black ink. So you must imagine them.



You know I make up stories for my people I draw. However, the fellow on the right did in fact have on polka dot tights and high pink rubber rain boots that matched his pink headset. I have no idea what the woman is fantasizing.



These two women rarely miss a Thursday at this café, always doing something on their duel laptops, talk a while and then get down to work. They MUST know I am drawing them, but they've yet to ask.


 
Meanwhile, back a few days at Starbucks where one is never alone even if they are.
 
 
This young fellow was really dressed up and I loved that I had a bright turquoise marker pen to color his shirt. It was that bright!
 


I was enjoying for some weird reason drawing guys sitting with legs spread! It's what they do.

This guy is a regular, who I have met and talked to there. But not on this day. 


 
I continue to enjoy watching my own growth and development with the Sktchy App Portraits from photos. I love Emma Rose's eyes!!!

 
She had lovely long braids that were very meditative to draw.
 

 
The Sktchy prompt was "Color" so I gave her lots of colors!
 

And this one done last night had a black background which was perfect for a night sky.

I am so enjoying all this drawing. My garden is growing too. I am staying nice and busy enjoying life, and I hope you are too.

Thanks for coming by. Your comments and encouragement keeps me drawing!

Have a Creative Week.

  5. Hi Lynn! I just love your drawings. My favorites are Ann with all the color and very cool hair. I would love to have the guts to wear my hair like that except I think I am too old and too tall. It fit Ann perfectly! The braids you did are beautiful. I have had a hard time drawing braids. Side note here, every time I see the sketches from the artists who are allowed to go into trials where (I guess) the media cannot attend, I think of you. That would be the perfect job for you and you are much better than some of them :-) Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. Oh Rasz, you've made my day! A Coutroom artist! Wouldn't that be fun?! They'd all look like Starbucks fans! I truly believe you are never too old or too tall to color or cut your hair anyway you want to! My belief is we are only on stage once in this life we might as well pack in as many shows/adventures as possible in the time we have left! That goes for costumes too! Have you ever seen that photographer's work who photographs old people in all their finery? It's fab! If I find it I'll post about it for you to look up!
