Sketching in White Bear Lake - the Cup and Cone

I haven't posted for a while, but I have been drawing. This fun sketch was done from the Caribou Coffee window in White Bear Lake, MN.  I think this place just celebrated 40 years.  I met my confirmation mentee here to finish his faith statement.  I sketched at the small table as he wrote between our talks so he didn't feel I was watching him write. 



My tools here are Daniel Smith watercolor in my tiny travel kit, Pentel brush pen force fed with Noodlers Lexington grey, and a water pen. I have same kit loaded with Roz Stendhal's Schmincke Horadam gouache palette. I use this small arsenal on about 80% of my out of the studio work these days. 

I love seeing everyone's work!

  1. Love it, James! I don't think I've been to Cup & Cone since childhood.
