This is number 9 in the cafe series. By doing these cafe scenes I have been able to focus on letting the colors mingle to imply the crowds and the details versus painting every tiny detail. I have noticed that I really like painting in several washes, layer over layer.
Should I title this "Morning Coffee" or "Table for One"? Table for One sounds lonely, but, I don't think he is lonely at all. In fact, I would love to be him, sitting there sipping my coffee and watching everyone go off to work. He is just enjoying his coffee and not in a rush. Ironically, the rush is coming to an end with the school year ending and I am finding it hard to down shift out of the fast pace. I was able to paint most of the day yesterday which is good, but, just weird adjusting to quiet and not rushing around.
Have a great week. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
