This lady carefully marked up her cheesy crime novel, “Guns Before Butter” with her pencil as she read. The train ride was really bumpy and so my ink line got pretty squiggly. I switched to drawing her after a big guy with a bike got on and completely blocked my view of the man above her.
I experimented some more with the brown craft paper sketchbook, drawing with a black brush pen on BART and (above) adding white pen and colored pencil at home.
And below, some ink drawings done on BART with watercolor added at home later.

great sketches. I’ve never seen a brown craft paper sketchbook before, I’ll have to check that out.
Oh, how I miss BART…
Nice drawings…..I like the one of the woman underlining her book…..I wonder why she was doing that? So she wouldn’t lose her place? Was she a literary critic? Curious!
Jana…your people sketches are really good, especially the mouths…an area I feel can “make or break” a sketch. You have nailed them.
Your website is awesome. I am so inspired by your artwork. I am just a baby watercolor artist, I truly love to see someone who can do such beautiful paintings.
Thanks for sharing in such a beautiful way!
Love you ideas for your sketch group. I hope to get one started here in Vermont now!
