Latte Pastel, Table Sketch

I finally started a painting. I decided to do small paintings for my show in March. If you have been reading my blog you might remember the latte sketch . I do like blue glass and that started the painting project. This still needs a few tweeks but it does convey the idea I had in mind. I also love Bolivia so added in the aguayo table cloth as well. This is 5 x 7, soft pastels. It is on Art Spectrum paper dry mounted on illustration board.

Last night I did #9, table, for the Scavenger Hunt on wetcanvas.com. This is the coffee table, minus quite a few items that make it hard to see all the table top in real life. That may be the reason it is in such bad perspective, or just sketching with my feet up with the lamp light shining on my sketchbook, watching TV and the table in the dark. Ah well, it is another sketch. It is in my handmade book that Sue gave me with the Micron 05 pen. Extremely rough paper. Sketch about 6 x 6 inches. About 15-20 minutes.

ooooh, Jo... this new painting makes me crave caffeine. I love the shiny texture of the mug and the frothiness of the foam. Splendiferous! :)

Monica, Thank you, such a wonderful word, splendiferous! :) In Española, NM, last year I was told at a coffee shop that I drink "AWTs" (A Waste of Time) that is a decaf, no fat latte. They taste the same, but no sizzle. Ha. Thanks for the nice comment.

I forgot to say that as you can see, I make them at home and save a few bucks! Fun to splurge once in a while for the atmosphere and have a "real" one.
