I had to take the car in for an oil change early this morning. Rather than wait for the car at the station, I walked down the street to a coffee shop. Unlike my last post, I had a sketchbook with me this morning. Interesting. I think I sketched this man once before . . . also around 7 am . . . same coffee shop and I was there for the same reason.

I arrived in town a bit early the other day, so I stopped for chai at a favorite coffee shop. These moments are made for sketching, since people always make such wonderful shapes when visiting informally with friends.
There were many more possibilities in the room. Problem was, the backs of my chai receipt and an envelope were the only blank papers I had. A small sketchbook added to my purse would be a good idea.

oil on panel
In this painting I was interested in the color, value and intensity changes caused by light and shadow.
For those of you who enjoy seeing the beginning sketches, another one was posted on March 27th. For some reason it did not go out to those requesting notices of new postings. It can be seen on my Day to Day Painting site.
