It seems inevitable, if you are going to draw in coffee shops then one day there will be an accident. Courtesy of me knocking over a full mug of coffee earlier this week I now have a coffee-infused sketchbook. Several pages got a complete drenching and the remaining pages now all have a latte-coloured edge. What really annoyed me was that I was just getting into what looked like would be a good person sketch when it happened!
It’s somewhat off-putting that I get a strong smell of milky coffee whenever I pick up my book. I’m hoping that will dissipate with time!
I’ve only just started this book so throwing it away isn’t going to happen. Here’s my Cafe Wednesday sketch.
On the weekend I painted a pallet across the road from our other regular coffee spot.
These were the most damaged pages so after this it should just be the odd blotch and a coffee rim around the edge!
