Starbucks tonight

I had a big sketching adventure planned today. I had my sketch bag packed, my pens filled, my sketchbooks ready ... but it just didn't happen. To make up I went to the neighborhood starbucks for a quick sketch. 

I drew this scene once before almost 2 years ago, and I remember obsessing over all the little details and it took me almost 2 hours just to do the drawing. This time I got the main lines down in 10 mins and set about with the paint. I am quite happy with the drawing, but I don't like how uninteresting the painting is.

Well, everything is a learning experience if nothing else :-)
