Each time I travel to California, I make an effort to paint at my favorite coffee shop, Koffi. The quaint cafe is located in Palm Springs and attracts and array of unique patrons.
Anywhere from students, to life-long friends catching up, to artists like myself, Koffi is a go-to stop for tea and coffee lovers alike.
During my last visit to sunny California, I stopped by the cafe to have a quick cup of Joe and recreate the scene I saw before me. I used pen and ink to sketch out the two tables of friends catching up, and then proceeded to fill with watercolor.
I painted with a rustic style, which paired well with the atmosphere of the shop. The prominence of sepia tones allowed the people to really pop from the background.
