Middle East Market Teapot, Berkeley, ink & watercolor 5.5 x 7"

When I read this interesting story about the owner of the market, “From Ecuador via war-torn Iran to melting pot Berkeley” on Berkeleyside, I thought it would be a good place to sketch. I was right.

It is bright and colorful with a large variety of Middle Eastern products and freshly made food. It was quiet there on a Tuesday evening so the gentleman manning the shop was fine with us sitting at the cafe tables in the back and roaming the shop to sketch. I got so drawn into the teapot that I only had time to do one sketch before they closed at 8:00. We usually sketch from 6:30 to 8:30 or 9:00 so it was a short evening.

  3. Oh Jana! Thank you for this. I had no idea that this market existed and now I can’t wait to go and find it and sit at a table and enjoy exactly that lovely scene you’ve painted so beautifully. xoxo
