Jan 7. "Coffee Shop Energies"


Our local urban sketchers group, USkTC (Urban Sketchers; Tri-Cities) met this morning at the Local Coffee Shop for our first outing of the new year.  We had the largest group ever with 14 members participating, so it was a lot of fun.  Space was a premium, but we muscled our way in and took over for a couple of hours of good fun both socializing and drawing.

This is the third of three quick sketches I did this morning.  Thanks to Cindy Rutherford's inspirational words I sort of "went-for-broke" here as I wanted to capture the energy in the room. The initial sketch took about 30 seconds, the paint about 3 minutes.  Later line "embellishments" another 30 seconds, maybe less: Total time about 5 minutes.

You did catch the energy and your own sense of fun! I love it =)

Amazing what a quick "capture" can do. I bet you can see this years from now and it will all come back. While I can look at it and find/make-up all kinds of stories from it. Fun!

I love this sketch too Jim. I know that you did not catch me in that sketch, cause I would be colored green! ; ) Yes, definitely a fun outing, your sketches show the coffee a buzz energy for sure!!!!
