PAINT PARTY FRIDAY YIPPPEEE!!!

Hi Everyone!
This has been a very long day. I had an 8:30 AM meeting that lasted a few hours. Rushed home picked up Mike and off to the big city. Ohh you know Eugene, OR. It is an all day ordeal there. We had fun though and the over there was beautiful sunny and warm. I have lots to do tonight and so I thought I would get my Paint Party Friday post up early. I do have to watch Project Runway All Stars tonight...I ran across some more car art. I have been asked how I sketch while riding in the car. It is not always easy. Now, if I ride in the back seat I am car sick before we take off. LOL In the front passenger seat I am OK, I can't read in the car but drawing is a different focus for me. I always have a box with graphite new clean erasers a few paper towels and a sketch pad. With the first stroke it just comes to me. Can't explain it any other way. Hey the pictures are not always pretty but it is fun.
Thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting Paint Party Friday. Stop by their blog to see all the great artists who join in the fun.

  6. I do that too, as much as I can. Isn't it fun? And keeps you busy if you are driving in a boring place :o)

  7. Wonderful portraits. I cannot draw in the car, the motion just doesn't work for me, so the fact that you can, and can produce such art is awesome. :)

  8. beautiful portraits!! And I have to agree- amazing that you can draw these while riding in the car. I've never tried that, but we have a road trip coming up and I might just bring along my pencils... :-) Silke

  12. Pretty faces! :) I cannot read nor draw in the car. I used to read comics all the time when I was a kid. But when I started driving things change. Can't even look down without getting nauseous. :)

  13. Oooh, I like the first one. It has some boldness of expression as if to say 'I'm here!'.

    Happy PPF!

  14. Your drawings look fabulous. Drawing in the car, I've never tried that. I certainly can't read anywhere in a car, not even text message. Drawing in the train while commuting works perfectly, though. Happy PPF!

  19. Great faces!

    I do that too if we are on a family drive somewhere. No reading but drawing is different.

  20. I have to say that I am so impressed that you are able to draw in the car - with such control! Fantastic! (I'm glad to hear that it is while you're a passenger and not driving! ha!)

  23. Hi Nicole. What great faces. Nice job!! I can't draw in the car and reading is hard for me. It seems I'm always watching the dashboard to see how fast we are going.:) Wonderful work Nicole. Have a great weekend and take care.

  25. I love the second chin shape, as if there is a soft sweater or shawl up against her face. I can't imagine drawing with such a steady hand while riding in a car! Good job!

  38. Just realized that I don't get sick any longer while riding in the back of a bus. Found out during a funny ride through the Austrian mountains, including tunnel passages, snow covered roads and incredible views of sunny skies and snow covered mountains.
