Boyz 4 Brekkie

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.

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?
