Drawing (people) around Home

And the follow up post to Drawing People at Home.

Some sketches aren’t literally at home. They’re at the library, while we pick books for the week. 2 versions of this guy in a chair, so at peace with his book.
Both use watercolor, the one on the left also has some brushpen and white Posca marker lines on it.

Blvd. Coffee of Almaden is where I sketch regularly: right by home, an independent coffee shop, super friendly. Sitting at the bar gives me a view of the baristas at work. Two baristas, but three in my sketch? Yeah, the guy in the back features in two spots. He went back and forth a lot while I sketched, the guy making the coffee stayed near the machine. A photo is a snapshot of a fraction of a second, but my sketch is a capture of being there for a half hour.

Optometrist appointment. Waiting for the doctor to come in. Water-soluble colored pencil and pen. But I didn’t bother with the water.

    The more you sketch, then better, more eye appeal they become. Practice makes perfect.
