Summer Session Art Date 3: Color at the Cafe

Leave a comment

cafeTake your sketchbook to your local coffee shop, bistro, or diner (somewhere you can sit comfortably for a bit) and enjoy a cup of java.  Take time to observe the human species in its caffeinated surroundings and do a quick portrait. See Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s painting for inspiration of a looser, impressionist style of portrait.  If you are a little nervous about getting caught drawing your neighbor, you can always draw what you ordered!  For this workout, we suggest using gouache for great layering and brilliant color.

Now at Wet Paint, M. Graham artist quality gouache is 40% off MSRP!  This super-pigmented gouache paint is available in a nice range of colors that are perfect for mixing and at an economical price!
