Fifteen of My Favorites From This Week

I found some neon markers at the thrift store and went crazy over using the yellow one! Glad there were a lot of blonds out this week where I was drawing!

And they each had their story to tell ...

*yes I am
These ladies below were more in the grey haired realm (as am I) so I stuck to water soluble Woody Stabilo crayons and water brush. Perhaps some Tom Bow markers as well.

My online friend, Darlene Campbell, challenged me to get more creative from my imagination, so I added lines (actually one line was a mistake, which I used to create more lines like water and added fish from my imagination. The people were in this pose on the SKTCHY APP. See what I mean by

More drawing at Starbucks ...

* something my husband might say

and more Sktchy folks ...

... and more opportunities to use that Yellow Neon Marker again!!!

... and again! They were all of 99 cents for three. I like when little things can bring me so much joy!

And three more Sktchy People begging to be drawn. I love this nightly ritual of drawing portraits from photos people post there. I'm very pleased with all of these.

Now it's time to wish YOU a creative week ahead,
and to thank you for dropping by and letting me know
what you think of all this drawing!

May happiness and good health rain down upon you.
