We had a mild day (it wasn’t windy) and so I thought I should take advantage of that fact and headed off for a long, very long walk. It was 5F. I walked to a mall that was a considerable distance away, the plan being that I’d hop a bus to get back.
The walk was fun and with my big fur-lined hat with flaps (the proverbial anti-chic magnet) and a coat that is heavy enough to be used as an anchor, I was toasty warm. When I arrived at the mall, I decided to reward myself for my effort with a tasty muffin and a cup of coffee.
I thought about the Pat Ng and Liz Steel approach to restaurant drawing and decided that I would draw the sign for the Cafe Supreme before ordering. So I sat down and did just that. Then I got my muffin and coffee and, in spite of temptation, they remained intact while I drew them.
The coffee hadn’t even cooled; my approach was going well. So, with a mouth full of muffin and a swig of coffee, I started drawing a portion of Cafe Supreme itself. A bright red coat, wrapped around a woman walked up and started to order so I drew it, put a head and legs on it. There need to be more red coats in our world. I finished up by drawing the bits and pieces that make Cafe Supreme the place it is. Winter sketching is sure different, but it’s fun too.
