Selective Color

Many days, the furtherest I can get from home is my local Starbucks.And I think “Yet another Starbucks sketch?” But everyday is different. And different things catch my eye on different days. Selective color helps keep these two impressions very different from each other, even though they are sketched only a couple of days apart.

A busy weekday morning at Starbucks. I guess it was my first time in since the store turned ‘all red’ for the holidays. Black ink line and two red colored pencils were all I used.

And a rainy dark Sunday evening where it seemed to me that everyone just stared at their screens, their faces reflecting the blue light. Black ink line. Cool tones in watercolor for all the screens, and a warmish backdrop to accentuate the eerie blues.

  1. Love your work, keep looking forward to your sketches


  2. I often have the ‘not another cafe sketch’ feeling but as long as you are sketching then the location isn’t important 🙂
