A Cuppa And A Read

8 Mar

waterstones 8


Here’s another couple of quick sketches I did in Waterstone’s bookshop cafe in Swansea. It’s very quiet there because most people have bought books and then pop up to the cafe for a cuppa and a read. It’s lovely. I drew with a ballpoint pen into my tiny Laura Ashley sketchbook. I’ve put it against a 50p piece for scale.




It’s a beautiful building, the former Carlton cinema and I sat under the dome to take this photo.

    I have no idea of the size of a 50-pence piece, but it looks to be rather small. Nice small drawings!

      Hi Alli, yes, it’s quite small, about 2.5cms diameter. I love working in such a tiny book 😀

      Thanks Phil. It’s a joy to be there, quietly sketching.
