Plein-air pen and wash on paper

Gina’s Mexican Cafe

Leave a comment

This restaurant is one of the coziest eateries in town. It is an old house located on top of a steep embankment along Skinner Street in front and Cliff Street about 50′ below along the back of the building.

I made a pen drawing first and in the process reserved a spot for a car to arrive in the parking lot. I was hoping for a smaller, cuter chariot but had to content with this huge vehicle.

After lunch it was ready for some coloring. The purple walls of this building make a nice contrast with the autumn colors of the maple trees; the main reason for selecting this scene.
