I just got back from painting at Halcyon Coffee House and Bar on Fourth Street, which is about 45 city blocks from my house. It was a very easy ride with a lot of one-way streets after I entered the university area.
I was more careful to pack my crate and balance it after falling off my bike this weekend. I was reaching for the pedestrian crosswalk light change button and it was humpty-dumpty for me! Luckily, I lived to paint again.
Later, I will try and write about painting people in public, and upload a few new paintings. I am too tuckered out tonight.
I painted yesterday at Halcyon Coffee House and Bar. This is the first time that I have painted there. I am always afraid upon my initial visit to a new place to paint publically. I imagine the worst sort of things: somebody gets mad at me for painting them, I spill something, I get paint on somebody, the waitstaff demands that I leave, etc. The only thing that gets me out the door, really, is that I need the exercise.
I was only able to get two paintings. I spent some time on a third, but it was awful. Tomorrow, I will try to post some more about technique, since the barristra and a few customers had some interesting questions that I would like to share with you.
Would you like for me to describe the interior space and how I feel about them? Let me know! I don’t want to bore anyone.
