Daily Life, Grocery Shopping by Joan Tavolott

I don't know about anyone else but it seems like I'm forever doing grocery shopping. I eat so many veggies I am buying fresh produce every few days. I sketched this in one of our local grocery stores this afternoon. I did it directly in pen.

  1. Oh how I would have loved to have caught you drawing there Joan! Not sure I could do that. Well, of course I could, but would I?
    Love all your boxes of veggies and the peeps too.

    1. I tucked myself behind a display of soda cans so I had something to lean on. You could have found me lurking there. lol Thanks.

  3. I am always so harassed at the supermarket I can't imagine being able to draw this well! You have captured the scene beautifully.

    1. I sketched in the store and had my little paint set too, but I forgot my water brush so I did the color at home. Thanks.

  4. Fantastic sketch - and in pen, no less! Wow! I erase so much that I don't dare try a pen. This is wonderful!

    1. I usually use a pencil but challenge myself once in a while to work directly in ink or watercolor so I don't erase so much. Thanks so much.

  6. This is great, it gives such a good impression of the vegetable stall, I like the way you have painted the strawberries.

  11. Nice one Joan! Brave of you to try this in store. I still feel self conscious when I sketch! Nice choice of colours too.

  13. What a wonderful sketch - and what a brave artist you are to do it in such a public place (even if you were hiding a bit!)
