I sketch the Farmers’ Market a LOT. because I’m there every Sunday. Because it’s close to home. But most of all because I just love the riot of colors and shapes of fruit and vegetables and throngs of people all filling up their bags and sampling goodies.
In this sketch, I spy: green cabbage, red cabbage, cilantro, onions, yellow potatoes, red potatoes, carrots, tomato, zucchini, brussel sprouts, and lots of miscellaneous greens.
Watermelons, cantaloupes, and boxes os samplers in the foreground.
Love the bright colors of the peppers.

Love the subtle color harmony. And as usual you challenge me to dare to draw more naturally and less measured and calculating (aka “tight”). Amazing how authentic and real those scenes look with such fluent and loose drawing.
I love your farmers’ market sketches! This summer, it was way too hot here (Denver) the entire time (64 days I think with temps over 90) to be sitting out and drawing something like that. And of course very shortly there will be no more farmers’ markets for the year. I miss California’s year-round weather!
