National Coffee Day

43 Beans. Pen and watercolour in Stillman
and Birn Alpha sketchbook.





Apparently 29th September is National Coffee Day in the US. As a bit of a coffee fan (!) I thought I'd do a quick sketch of my latte today before I finished drinking it :-)


Coffee doesn't have the same traditions as tea. I did this sketch while having a traditional cuppa with a friend last month. The ritual of heating the pot and spooning in the leaf tea is rather lovely and soothing. However tea keeps me awake!

And here is a little sketch I did on a plane from a flight magazine some time ago showing coffee berries. So gorgeous!
