At the Playground

I took a walk in the Forest Park this afternoon. In spite of the cold weather, some parents took their children to the playground. I met with a Russian lady named Yuliya with two beautiful children. There were also some other children and their parents at the playground.

Images Seen at the Starbucks

I am waiting for the weather to warm up so that I am able to go outside to do plein-air painting. Meanwhile, what I could do is only sit at local cafes and draw customers there. This afternoon, I went to the Starbucks on Queens Blvd.

Toward the end of my stay there, a pretty Polish girl came to sit next to me. She wore a stylish beret.  I didn't see much of her face because of her cascading hair, but I was quick enough to grab the last sketch. Before I took off, she told me her name was Olinga. I am not sure if I spelled her name correctly. All the sketches were about customers busying themselves over their work either on the computer or the cell except for one who I didn't know why was dozing off in the corner with lots of baggage. Could be homeless, I guess. I don't know.

Images at the Ateaz

I meat to draw at the park this afternoon, but when I got there, I didn't see a soul, not even dog walkers. Finally, I saw a lone wolf sitting on the bench. However, by the time I was near enough to draw him, he stood up and walked away. So I went to the Ateaz again.

Customers Waiting at the Bank

This afternoon I went to my bank. While waiting to be served, I made the two sketches of the customers.
