Cafe sketch

I found a great sketch on the internet, done in a terrific style. I´d like to learn to draw half as well, so I had a go at sketching that sketch while my son ate his breakfast. So, no originality from me at all here, just learning from better artists! I got the chairs a bit wonky - didn´t align it properly on the page. All done in a bit of a rush: got it done before he finished his cereal though! The original, much better (of course) sketch was from Nita Casey. And her amazing sketch was just one of her quick, preliminary sketches for a painting. She has such an beautiful, clear style of sketching and watercolours.
