Sunday Sketches

"A friend is someone who overlooks your broken fence and admires the flowers in your garden."

It's time for another fabulous, creative Sunday Sketches - accompanied with tea and cake, of course!  I'm so glad each of you could join me and it's been wonderful seeing previous participants re-join the co-op.  Yeah!

Above is a quick sketch and watercolor I created in about 10 minutes at a local coffee shop this morning, sipping on a latte while people watching.  It's been raining here the past few days and it's been wonderful.  It makes me long for the soon-to-be Autumnal days.

OK.  Off to see what everyone else has been up to.  Happy creating!  Happy SS!

  3. You really have an amazing talent for capturing what you are thinking or seeing into such colorful and moving drawings or paintings. Hope you're having a good weekend.

    Our days are noticeably getting that autumn feel to them. Looking forward to the next season too.

  4. I love your flowers and the striped vase they are in. So fun and whimsical. Impressed you did it so quickly. I bet you get a lot done in the coffee shop of yours! Hope you have a great Sunday!!

  5. I had fun with my Sunday sketch today :D Love your 10-minute drawing here.
    I think I'm going to try painting in public some day. It will be a kind of new adventure to me :D

  6. I love your ten-minutes-flowers! The colors are wonderful and make me feel happy every time I look at them and I really admire your talent to do it within ten minutes! I also would like to draw somewhere in a public place but I am too shy to get out my sketchbook and pencils in a coffee shop. Maybe I can learn that ...
