I have been very busy these past two weeks. I've tried to organize myself in a way to still find time to sketch. If I have my sketching supplies at hand, I try to put something down even if I finish it later.
I spent an hour waiting at the health office just to pick up some paper work... by luck I had brought my sketching supplies!
I painted the fruit stand across the street. The first one I first drew out, then added the black ink.The second page was drawn immediately with marker. When I went home, I added the watercolor. Cars are not my forte...
People waiting do not stay still, constantly looking left then right, it is a challenge to get a likeness. I try to fix one side then hope to catch them again when they are in the same position. One of these days I will go up and ask them to...please stop moving!!!
I love the long roots of these fresh white onions. I would like to incorporate some calligraphy but feel rather shy about it, hence the small writing on the bottom
In this sketch I wanted to make it like the many recipe sketches I've seen some artists do so beautifully. I painted this while the green beans were boiling. Great way to bring my two passions together: food and watercolors!
A day at the beach provided me with the inspiration for my last two sketches...
and another wonderful opportunity to draw people. The man reading was very far away ... people notice immediately if you even slightly look at them.
Thanks for following me along in my sketchbook!
