Ice House, Eli's North, and before Church sketches

I am working pretty hard on learning to draw people on site and quickly.

This sketch is from earlier last week at the Ice House watching one of the JT Bates bands with Will Jensen. This was drawn and painted in the dark, so you never know what you are going to get. 

Unfortunatley on the second sketch I was sketching JT (it was dark is my excuse) and the drummer from Ahmad Jamal at the Dakota showed up in the sketch!

Two sketches on one sheet. People study in the downtown Caribou Coffee outside the government center waiting for the zoning board of adjustment to start and the second is a quick sketch after the meeting at the newer Eli's North just across the bridge.

I am working pretty hard on drawing people lately and I am always a little delighted with who shows up on the page. Sometimes it is even the person I am drawing!

The rest of these are people studies. I have free time before church and I sketch while we are having breakfast.  You can see Leo's drawing of Darth Vader (Angry Birds version of course) on one of the sheets.

Happy Sketching everyone! Where ever, whenever... with whatever....
