He sits and reads as the wine tempts him on the table near by…

This sketch was inspired by a lovely small French cafe when we were on holiday. I loved the ambience & decor.  I felt inspired to capture on paper the ‘atmosphere’ & the ‘moment’ so out came my pencil case & sketchbook.. Often a comfy chair or a sofa, a cup of coffee or a glass of wine feature in my drawings as do a title or the lyrics of a song played or indeed an extract from a book I am reading. My husband regularly features somewhere in my sketches & with this one it’s his shoe!
