The thoughts and works of a caffeine addicted artist!

Another visit to Doddington Hospital on the return from my morning school run.
I was very lucky, reception was very busy. I managed to sketch the receptionist and captured a really good likeness which got me off to a confident start.
A man sat waiting for a cab for a few minutes, which gave me another chance to grab my watercolours.
Finally, the two small tables at the coffee kiosk where I sit became full, the tables are very close so I feel a little rude sketching customers usually but because it was so busy everyone was chatting to one another and their attention was off my mischievous doodles, so I managed another coloured sketch. I discovered that the coffee machine has a latte pod, which I made use of immediately. I was there for around an hour again and really felt switched on, I got a great likeness of the three people I concentrated on mostly and was even asked for my card by the kiosk attendant who is keen for me to be a speaker at a women's group she attends. Great morning!
