Friendly St. Market, Eugene, OR
It started out simply enough – Erik asked Jane if he could sketch her, Jane sketched the power muffin & beverages in front of her, Barb Sh came in with her sketch of her hand from last week.
Then Ken O’Connell came in with a book a friend had published of her work, which captivated us: Barbara Stevens-Newcomb, Penelope Youngfeather, Erik Johnson, Barbara Shirk, Jane Harrison.
Barb S-N was intrigued by the weight scale across the room, which magically sprouted leaves and then the escape was on.
Penelope & Tricia started sketching the various beverage containers.
Erik was nearly finished with his sketch of Jane when a woman in a magnificent cape and long boots came into the store.
Barb Sh inked in leaves penciled in from a visit to the doctor, then added the guy at the next table. Fresh colors bring it alive.
Jane’s sketch grew from the simple outline to color, to more objects, to her muffin in soluble ink. Which prompted Barb Sh to share her soluble ink sketch – very old Schaeffer blue ink turned purple!
Meanwhile, Penelope added color as well as people at the table.
And Tricia did the same (but differently!).
