Texture and Patterns, Lynn Cohen "Patterns at Starbucks Cafe on Sunday"

These are both patterns I saw in clothing I drew today, while drawing at Starbucks Café.
First his plaid shirt. It was cotton. I am seeing a lot of plaid flannel shirts this season,
in fact I am wearing them myself!
I cropped him out of a larger drawing I did.

She is also cropped out of her group. Being the only one wearing something patterned. She had a  silky looking floral scarf draped over her shoulders. It was a pretty pattern!

This prompt has me looking for patterns this week!
These were done on gray toned paper in a Strathmore spiral art journal, 80# paper,
with Micron ink pen 03, white gel pen, and KOH-I- NOOR watercolors and a
mixture of brands of water soluble colored pencils.


  1. Your Starbucks models never fail to entertain me Lynn :-)

  2. These are awesome and yes plaid is in again...remember the seventies when it was in!!
