Our Cafe Sketching class went to the Cool Moose in Riverside today – cold outside, warm inside. Sabrina was our ever-efficient waitress and constantly brought us hot tea, coffee, delicious pastries and omelets. Everyone had fun doing a quick sketch of the table with pen and ink (no pencils allowed!) before we tried a longer one. Most of the class concentratied on drawing the people in the cafe, but it had to be fast because our subjects moved. That’s the beauty of getting it down quickly – just getting the essence, the flavor of the place.
