draw one in

pve design illustration - shop sketch
I love to illustrate things and places with a perspective that will draw one in. This shop sketch makes me wish I was there now, on the avenue, walking and window shopping. What things lure you and draw you in?

A beautifully styled window always draws one inside. I love Bergdorf's famous holiday windows.

Oh - and cute puppies in a pet store window brings back a flood of childhood memories!

Lovely sketch. Just adore the fresh look of your blog. Have a nice day!

A window that is colorful inside. I also love homes that have lights on inside. Driving or walking by, I like to take a peek, as to how cozy people live (of course discreetly).

Color, style and mood draw me in. You have it all here. Great job!

This illustration would certainly make me want to visit the shop. First impressions...ie,doors and windows.... are so important. Of course, a shop dog in the window draws me in immediately!

This drawing of you is much more inviting to go in that shop than a lot of shopwindows do!
I would certainly go in by seeing your illustration!

Your art work draws me in. They are warm and inviting; like a candle lit in a window.

Pretty window displays that have unique items beautifully placed for me to behold!

My senses draw me in. Visual things, books, fabric, artwork
linens. Smell of coffee, cider or tea, hearing the rain outside the shop. Touching the shop items and the shop dog or cat.

Tasting the fresh baked goods, lunch or dinner in a quaint spot then a decadent sweet to finish. Being in the strolling company with a friend or family members. Later the memory draws me back in again to recycle the experience. When you're creative life draws you in everywhere with everything.

Hmmm...a warm cafe and a glass of wine. Never fails.

I received the prettiest card last week. Thank you...it was a spot of sunshine in a grey month. A more personal note to follow. xo

I would say your artwork is definetly one of those things that lures me in! Have to ask, you mentioned Beverly earlier. Is this shop in Beverly Farms? I grew up in the area and am just curious...
