Cafe . . .

I’ve always had this desire to draw outdoors, but I always end up drawing the everyday stuff. I don’t do ‘the sublime’ – I don’t draw ‘The Tuscan landscape’  etc. etc.  I PREFER the cafe ’round the corner  . . ho hum . .Danny Gregory is right . . photo 4

Tried something new today: laid blocks of colour, then added detail with line, then added more textural colour. I’m reasonably pleased with it as an experiment- think the image needs to be larger to reduce the ‘strength’ of the line.
