Faces May Change, but the Game Goes On

New Day Bakery/World Cafe, Eugene, OR

AllIt was a gorgeous day – hard to believe it’s just mid-April – so we gathered in the courtyard: Tricia, Barb Sh, Ken, Sandy, & Erik.

Erik-1   Erik-2    Erik-finishHere’s Erik checking his process – light pencil outline, adding layers of color, then ta-dah!  “Sunrise at McDonald’s”

BarbSh-1      BarbSh-2Barb Sh (behind Erik’s shoulder, above) found some shade to sketch bikes (or maybe just one) parked just inside the courtyard gate.

Jane-1   Bikes   Jane-grey bikesJane sketched the bikes, too, but from a different angle.

KenKen was just going to eat and run, but his sayings caught up with him as the group chanted, “Just draw something!” So he did.

Satoko-1     Satoko-2But Satoko didn’t just come to socialize – a quick sketch of the couple at the table across the courtyard and a lovely application of colored pencils. “Rembrandt pencils are so creamy,” she says.

P-1      Tricia-2PPenelope brought her sketches to show us, and here she’s caught in mid-bite having encouraged Tricia to try sketching more loosely.
