Cup of tea luv? 365 Days of Drawing



This is one of my favorite drawings yet. Simple. Fast. And the wash technique brief and breezy with the drawing showing through just the way it should be.

The photo was taken at a sidewalk cafe in Dinan. Ah, how the french love the fine things in life like this bone china cup.

The table was set with linens, china, and elegant crystal with a red and white theme, all for a mere sidewalk cafe. I sat for quite a while in this most enjoyable spot on a Saturday afternoon feeling very special this table was set just for me.
