Bar and Restaurant Interiors


Took a bunch of pics around the bars and restaurants last evening and then spent the day drawing and painting them. Only down side was that it was 70 degrees and sunny here and i wished all day that i had been plein air painting instead. oh well... there are worse jobs!

Headed to the Tiny Gems show at the Rowley Gallery, Orleans, Mass.

A popular watering hole in Orleans and with all the colorful signs hanging down from the ceiling, its a blast to paint

I really like your interiors. Do you take photographs in these places, or sketches? Or do you work from memory?
