I wasn’t feeling well the night we sketched at the newish Rendez-Vous Cafe-Bistro and it looks like I sketched my feelings onto my friend’s face. She was cheery and having fun but my pen gave her an expression reflecting how I felt instead.
There was a guitar jazz duo playing lovely music and the waiter kindly let me order spaghetti and meatballs from the kids’ menu since I just wanted a small portion. As you can see in the sketch above, after I sketched my food on the table I continued down the page, over the binding, and sketched my legs and feet under the table.
By the end of the evening I was feeling much better, as almost always happens when I sketch, especially with such good friends.

I’m really enjoying seeing your sketches. They’re so fun and playful. You get such feeling into your meal sketch. How do you do that?? Thanks for showing!
Oh, dear! Isn’t it funny how our own stuff comes out in what we do?! But I love that you post your work– the good, the bad, and the in between!
Thanks Carol. I appreciate your encouragement to post it all…though I have to admit every once in a while I hold back something that is just plain awful or makes me cringe. Jana
jana, I love the interesting perspective in the second drawing. Both of nice color but your friend does look a bit glum or under the weather. Glad you recovered and were able to enjoy the evening.
