  1. I have always said, those lines are your strength and you should use them, and you do it nicely. =)

    You got such talent in catching those moments, well done.

  7. Such expressive lines, and the atmosphere has come across so warmly and realistically. I can almost here the coffee machines. Beautiful drawings.
    We call ours (we being Dev and me) 'waiting room moments', as regular as coffee shops! Off to hops now - sketchbooks in pockets.

  9. Would you believe I was taking reference photos at a Starbucks just yesterday! One of these I want to do a drawing inside a coffee shop. There is something so charming about those places! Your drawing is especially great! I like how you captured the way people seem to let themselves relax when they sit down with their coffee and catch their breath for a few minutes. Nicely done!

  13. How on earth did you manage to draw these people and take a pic, before they changed position?? Am in awe! If it were me, they'd have left the building before i was even half way done, lol! :0)

  14. I love the way you sketch, Nora. I've tried to do that but my sketching is always so rigid. What is the secret? Will you tell.

  41. What terrific sketches. Do people come over to you and want to see/critique what you've done. I'm also so shy about drawing in public, but I do enjoy the Urban Sketchers group.
