This was sitting in my pile of scraps for almost a year. I finally got a chance to try to paint it.

Gouache and a little colored pencil on on bristol board


windows, tea, book, woman, cartoon, drink, coffee, reading, cup

    Absolutely gorgeous, this woman is after my own heart, well apart from the coffee mug, I’d normally have a wine glass in mine. I love the tree out the window too, in fact I’d probably take my book and lie under it and read.

    wonderful detail
