Caricature Stand at 2nd annual Mercato Fine Arts Festival - Day 2 Photo Journal

Despite a bit of rain early in the morning and a rather windy start that lead to me stow away the sun umbrella under the table, we enjoyed a fairly nice day on the second day of the Art Festival. Had a pretty good spot between the live music station and the Copper & Hand Blown Glass tent of sculptor John Zidek who also proved to be quite an entertaining neighboor.
Hmm maybe I should reconsider my equipment set up, but it was a good opportunity to test the performance of a wide variety of coloring tools for creating live caricatures. Even remembered to document my favorite colored caricatures with a digital camera.
Again relied on my trusty Sakura Pigma Sensei 0.6 mm and 1.0 mm manga drawing pens to draw all the cartoon portraits of the day.
Colored with Faber Castell Pitt Big Brush Artist pens and Prismacolor Double-Ended Art markers.
Since the selection of markers on hand did not include lighter hues of pink, the Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils came quite handy in laying down subtler tones with more interesting texture. Happy Birthday Bishop!
The cartoon portrait of these siblings should make nice gift for their grandma. My thanks to all the guests that stopped by to get drawn or just say hi.
