Last week was another round of #oneweek100people, an annual challenge to sketch 100 people, started by Marc Taro Holmes, Suhita Shirodkar, and Liz Steel. Sketchers set their own parameters, usually things they want to work on, like starting with watercolor or using a particular pen.
Once again I did not get to 100, but I'm okay with that. It was a weird week and I was just grateful to have a reason to make time to sketch. My approach was to get information using very few lines, so I used my favorite Pigma Graphic 01 (my "fat pen").
In the middle of the week I had a sketching dinner with Christina Huntington and Martha Kelly. What a treat! I didn't draw them to add to my 100 people, though - the items in Christina's house were too interesting to not sketch.
One day I had the time to add watercolor and I'm really happy with how those turned out.
On Friday I had lunch at the Dixon and sketched a few people in the cafe with my HI-TEC-C Coleto multi-pen - that's always a fun way to draw people. When I left the museum I saw this long line of people waiting for a food truck and I figured that was my opportunity to make it up to 50.
I do love this challenge - it always reminds me how much I enjoy sketching people and I end up sketching people more when it's over. On Monday morning I sketched people in a meeting!
