Life from a Sidewalk Table

More from Santo Domingo...the second exercise of the "Improvising Lines and Colors workshop with Inma and Orling afforded us a chance to look further afield for subjects, though by late morning the heat was already oppressive.  I employed my cunning urban sketching skills to find a lively street scene that I could capture while enjoying an ice cold Presidente cerveza at a shady sidewalk table (one has to stay hydrated while working outdoors).  When Inma and Orling found me drawing from a table littered with pens, watercolors and beer bottles, Inma said, "You...you understand LIFE!" That's a critique i will always treasure.
