a Tuesday in April

I spent this rainy Tuesday urban sketching in a dry cafe, drawing people.
$40 - 5x7"painting with 8x10"mat.
Here's my process - 
I drew with my 6B pencil on a small hot-pressed watercolour pad.
You can see my tiny palette, that was once an eye shadow kit! Very unobtrusive!
Also, my small water container, a rag and my size 14 watercolour paint brush.
Another customer sat down, so I quickly added her, left of the blonde woman.
Happy with this one... and onto another. : )


  1. I'm just awed by how well you keep perspective and proportion, Nora. Another fabulous painting!

  2. I admire your quick sketching skills - I have a tendency to procrastinate and by the time I get going my subject has gone!

  3. It's lovely.

    Admire your stealth watercolor methods. I try, but sometimes get noticed, which I find disrupts my concentration.

  4. Wonderful watercolor Nora!
