|IHOP Coffee Carafe|
Watercolor and Ink
5 x 5 Inches
To continue that yippee-we're-on-vacation!!" feeling that Chris and I found in Gulfport (see post here), we decided to go out for breakfast on the 4th of July. The only time we ever eat breakfast out is when we're on vacation or unusual circumstances (like the Jeep had to go into the dealer at 7:00 am for a recall).
I decided to get in some people sketching practice while we waited for our food to be delivered....and picked the one guy in the whole restaurant that was getting ready to leave 13 seconds after I put down my first line on the page.
I decided to shift my attention to the coffee carafe that the waitress had just set down on the table.
I knew it wouldn't be leaving.
When we arrived home, I decide to go ahead and add color to the piece....and wondered why in the world I didn't turn the pot so that some of handle showed for a more interesting sketch...what was I thinking?!
My "save" was to paint in an imaginary shadow showing the handle. Not highly accurate or convincing, it does save this from a totally useless sketch.
I think I need more practice. Or maybe I just need more coffee before I tackle this again.
Will you be sketching this weekend?
