Drawing What I Observe "Coffee House and Restuarant Drawings", Lynn Cohen

I go to local coffee houses (Starbucks, Barnes & Noble Café, Pure Grain Bakery) and observe the people sitting or standing around, and I draw them. I love giving them conversations or talking about their behaviors that I observe and then make up stories about.
This is something I have been doing  since 2012, and started out doing once a week; now I am more apt to draw in one of these places 4-5 days a week. As a result I have filled many, many
art journals with these people scenes and watched my drawing continue to improve over time.

This is an example of a drawing done in 2012. Maybe you can see my progress.
(and maybe not! LOL)
