Soup at Triple Rock Brewery, ink & watercolor, 5x7"

We met for Tuesday night sketching at the main Berkeley Firehouse where we had permission to sketch firetrucks and emergency paraphernalia (and maybe even a hunky fireman or too) but they had to shut down the station and send all their trucks and guys off to fight fires.

So we went around the corner to Triple Rock Brewery. I got a bowl of delicious soup and sketched it on the black plaid tablecloth (waterproof tablecloth of course—and a good thing as we saw a couple of pitchers spilled while we there).

We had fun sketching and listening in on bar conversations. I was surprised how full the pub was on a Tuesday night, lots of energy and noise and people laughing.

  3. Great watercolor! I like the white spaces here and there, like on top of the pies. (Nice to find you again!)

  4. Hi Jana, I must rejoin you some Tue for sketching. It’s on my calender but keeps getting pushed back. Re your hardware sketch below: I like the darker windows and how the dark creates more contrast with the figures and intensifies the colors on the wares for sale.

    • Please do Beth. I would love to see you! Do you get the group emails? Did you see the one about the young architects group that wants to sketch with us? I’ll forward it to you. We should talk about that message we were going to send out the plein air group. Seems like it’s time to do it, though I’ve got a lot going on right now Jana
