First time using black paper and bright pastel colors for some handlettering.
Lately I have been in the mood to sketch different cafe’s. I think of James Gulliver Hancock and his illustrated buildings in New York. Would be fun to do a large series on different cafes. Now that I made myself a small travel watercolor set from an altoid tin, I try to do a sketch while on lunch break. Since I’m not right in a big city, I have collected images on pinterest that would love to draw and when break comes I decided which one to paint. It is such a great escape and recharges me for the second half of the work day.
Today I had to take my vehicle to the mechanic. While my truck was getting fixed, unlike most people who sit and read a magazine, I got so much done! Prepared for Sunday school lesson with coffee, made two handletterings, sketched in the park and then had lunch in Kent. Then I put in a half day of work at Joann Fabrics ( I am now a Designer for headquarters, pretty amazing job!) I wish 1 day a week I could just go into work later :P
