Here is a silly little sketch I did in the restaurant. As soon as the guy sat down I knew I would sketch him. He had pink cheeks and white around his eyes and I knew he was a motorcyclist. Then when I saw his hat I knew where he had been, Sturgis, South Dakota.
Sturgis is a big time gathering place for motorcyclists and it is a very long way from here.
Pink cheeks, white eyes
‘I just got back from Sturgis
Sunglasses will do that’
We went to the casino yesterday for lunch. He likes to gamble and you know what I like to do. The painting on the left is in the dining room while the one on the right is the casino front with the hotel behind it. Done in my sketch journal
Below is the painting I did 5mo the ago for comparison. At least I know I have improved. 😄
I love when my husband plays golf because then I can use that time for sketching. This is on the river walk where there are walkers and bikers. Took a lot of pencil marks to get the action of these ladies. lol

Listening to the State of the Union Address……with sketchbook in hand.
I found a few more beard/mustaches in my archives. Most from photos.
I definitely need to go out and find some new models. 😄
It’s true.. After my sketch yesterday and talking about how inspiring it is to sketch guys with beards/mustaches, I looked back and found these sketches of guys……and that’s only half of them. Lol. It’s true!
I always like eating at Culvers (I don’t have to cook). While we were waiting for his chicken to be cooked this guy walked in and sat down, right within sketching distance…..there is just something so interesting about a guy with a mustache and/or beard that I can never resist even if I only have a few minutes.
