Caffe Frascati on a Friday Night

Friday was Community Showcase at Caffe Frascati in downtown San Jose. Musicians amble in and play new songs they’ve written and a few crowd-favorites. It’s fun to draw musicians, especially in an intimate setting where you’re guaranteed front row seats. And good coffee.




Sketched with these supplies. The Burt’s Bees lip shimmer does the lovely, smudgy color sienna you see in the first few sketches.

    I love your drawings Suhita. I’m in the process of working through your Craftsy Course and I am learning heaps of stuff. Thank you so much… are a great teacher!


  2. Lip shimmer? Who would have known?? I think you’ll have to give this tip to Mark Leibowitz who is doing a lecture in Manchester about unusual sketching tools. I bet no one has told him about lip shimmer.


    • ah, but it’s only a good tip if you already have lip shimmer in your bag and if you forget to carry your colors with you 🙂 I’ll tell Mark it’s a good medium, and everyone should carry one!
