As part of the 2 week Montfaucon Workshop,
we took an over-night trip to Collioure, France which is only about 15 miles from Barcelona
and right on the Mediterranean Sea. It is a truly spectacular little place!
On the afternoon that we were to leave, I found myself on the beach in an outdoor cafe with my sketchbook and this incredible view. I ordered the most beautiful Cappucino (with a lovely swirl of whipped cream on top), plugged in my earphones and went to it. I don't think I could have been happier - no, I KNOW I couldn't be happier.
When the waiter asked if I would sell it to him, I told him it was part of my 'photo album' of my trip and really couldn't. He wondered if I would draw him another one when I looked at the clock and realized I had to go. So I took a photo of it, tore it out and handed it to him on my way out. I'm not sure who that pleased more - me or him! How fun to be able to share these little drawings!
You may notice a small pencil sketch in the lower right hand corner; my eraser rolled off a rock wall down a very steep cliff where I was drawing the day before, so there it is...
