DO I drink too much coffee? Well only one or two a day, but sketching the action and its area can be fun. I drew this at Mornington a couple of weeks ago whilst waiting for others to join me (I got there early to draw). My reference photo was pretty crappy so I went up there this morning and added my grisaille (from Steven Reddy Craftsy course). Then added the colour.
The brown/tan here was from my finished cappuccino. I like using ingredients from where I am , makes it feel special???
Below are my earlier attempts at Steven Reddy’s style
Coffee shops don’t differ too much across the world, apart from the coffee. When I was in the USA the coffee was weaker, except in Charleston near the Slave market.
There was a coffee shop and I was getting the lack of caffeine angries. We popped in and I ordered , the bloke behind the counter was from Melbourne. Best coffee I had in the USA!!!
AM I a coffee snob?
In a very short time we will be heading off for 3 months on our Great Pearl (30th wedding anniversary) trip Heading through
the central area of NSW North to Darwin. Getting there for Queens Birthday Weekend then spending the next 6-8 weeks in the north west.
Not only relaxing but sketching a journal to add to the memories. But my kit is limited to one drawer which includes some inspiration and some challenges, I am going to some big places as well as the Outback so I could add as I travel but a small caravan will only get smaller over three months. My paints and pencils are packed away
and hence some of my pics still have no colour.
SO I have my tyre pressures sorted thanks to Martin B.
and I have been practicing my country show/fair sketches (Red Hill Show)
