Here is a sketch I did in ink at Chipotle Grill of people in line. I colored the drawing at home with watercolors:
I've drawn quite a few people this last week in both of my Moleskines.
I am using one Moleskine for watercolor sketches. At this stage I am learning something each time and the results are inconsistent. This week the pictures were drawn on site, and colored at home.
Here is man at Einstein Bagles:
And a floating head from Chipotle Grill:
In my other Moleskine I am using mostly ink, some pencil, and some watercolor pencil. I am thinking of using acrylics to see what happens. I see all of the creative things people do with Moleskines, and am thinking I will try to incorporate what I've seen into future efforts. For now though, I've mostly done sketches.
Here are some people I found on tv and quickly drew (no camera stays too long on any one person on tv).
And here is one of the pharmacists at my neighboring pharmacy. I drew this while I was waiting at the drive-in window. My wife had seen my drawing and was barely able to keep a straight face the next time she saw him:
So they line up for me and I line 'em up for you with my own lines and color.
As James Taylor says:
"Yeah, big moon landing,
People all standing up,
Smiles for the loved ones,
They go walking on down the aisles.
Each re-engages, stepping into the sun,
I watch them turn like pages
One by one by one."
