2 days in West Los Angeles
Late June before our trip to Montana and the Northwest, we were in West Los Angeles for several days. These are a couple of sketches from my sketchbook. There is so much activity and wonderful people getting their morning coffee. And, there are the ones that can afford the luxury sitting in Peet's even if they are working on computers. I enjoy the variety of people. I love the sketches that I am able to do while sitting there. Usually I sketch the picture out and color it in later. There are times I pencil in notes about color for the landscape ones and come right back later to quickly paint in the colors. When doing the people, I always remember. The times I love best are when I can sit down and do the whole picture. It is a very vibrant and dynamic place, Los Angeles. I love it!
