A few people – sketches on the go

This artist was sketching outside a coffee shop right in front of us – perfect for me, since I thought that he was going to be there for a while. But he was just finishing up, or maybe he didn’t want me to sketch him, and left quite quickly. If it was the latter, I’m sorry, Mr Artist, to have been a nuisance. I love your beret, by the way.

We took a little trip from San Francisco to San Diego again. Many flights (including ours) were delayed… So there was more sketching time. Airports are good for people sketches I think. This guy stayed in the same position for quite long.

I enjoyed sketching this man. He was obviously very tired, and had a little snooze while waiting.

Sketching at lunch in Sausalito, which is located north of San Francisco. We went there on a ferry, and had a lovely afternoon. Photos later!

Have a nice week.

What a great little piece of the artist sketching an artist! Fun!!

Like the other ones too.

Your comment about my antelope gave me a mischievous grin- thank you!

Cool series Evelyn!
I wish I was lucky to sit on the same coffee shop you went!
I think flights are too boring, I wouldn't be a good source of inspiration...
Looking forward to see your shots. :)

Nice sketches! Some of these people enjoy a good sleep!

Wonderful sketches! I like people-watching. If the reason was the latter, he must have learned how it was to be sketched. So, how would you react if you were in his situation?

Have happy days ahead.

Love your sketches Evelyn.
All with great characters, I especially love the 2nd and 3rd piece with their appealing vivid colours on!

Happy weekends in advance and thank you for your kind words.
See you!

I bet you never get bored waiting for delayed flights with a talent like yours! Great colorful sketches :D

Evelyn you really get down to it with a minimum of strokes. Very admirable. I love your vibrant color choices in addition to the simplicity.

I think if I see another artist drawing me, we'd probably end up having a conversation :). But I guess not everyone is like me.

Thanks everyone for dropping by. Appreciate your comments.

I can see you had good fun! :)) You are very clever in making sketches! And I like the first sketch here a lot! And you made it well, even if he left too fast..!

Great fun! :)

Evelyn said...

Hi Viola
Thanks :). Yes, it was a lot of fun.

Love the 2D,3D look of the first one, nice.

nice sketches, my favourite is the man with the yellow background

I find it curious and amazing how we can "sense" someone looking at us. Maybe the artist in the nice beret did sense you... but if so, being a fellow artist, too bad he didn't just acknowledge and nod to you. I agree with the others, your talent keeps you well occupied during otherwise boring waits.

I love how you sketched another artist doing his work! The beret is fabulous too.

Oh, I would love to be sketched by you Evelyn. Another lovely series!
