Upstairs Downstairs

26 Dec

Called into Waterstones bookshop café today, it’s one of my favourite places for sketching en plein air because it’s upstairs with large windows overlooking the busy street which has a couple of benches often full of busy shoppers taking a rest. So I spy on them and draw them while I’m having a cuppa.

    Can never get a window seat at ours!

      Luckily there’s a large expanse of windows so can usually get one. Also I tend to pop in not long before they close, when it’s quiet.

    Great sketches… I ought to do word sketches, oughtn’t I?! Were they a couple, or strangers?

      Word sketches would be fascinating. I normally use my sketchbooks as the basis for more complex pieces of work.

      I think they were related. They knew each other, but different generations, she’s on the phone but he didn’t seem to have one

    I love Waterstones…haven’t been there for ages. Delicious smell of new books and coffee! Great sketches by the way! X
