Urban Sketches: A Late Lunch at Herb’s Restaurant

I wanted to post some sketches I did a weekend or so ago before too much time passes!

I see no date on this sketch, but I think this was on August 22. I had taken a sketching excursion that ended out in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue. By the time I got out there it was 3 p.m. and I was hankering for some grub. So I tried this little place called “Cafe Herb’s”. That was the day that was overcast but it didn’t rain until after sunset. So there were people getting in their outdoor activities–like these three. They were in bicycling gear and enjoying lunch when I sat down. I pulled out my sketchpad, pen and watercolors to give the scene a go, below:

Below: A photo to document the scene and completed sketch. I hate that old watercolor set!

Below: And it wouldn’t do to not post a post a pic of my lunch: a tomato and (Swiss?) cheese sandwich with some sort of lemony herb-seasoned pasta salad. And water. It filled the hole. : )

    Jazz: Thanks! I’m getting the impression that the sandwich is taking center stage, here! Next time, I will draw my meal!

    Doug: Hee!
