A new favourite place - french & mor

It’s always fun to discover a new place to have coffee, delicious pastries or a light lunch. If the new place is five minutes from home and an inspiring place to sketch it’s even better.

My new favourite is  french&morAs you can see from the sketches I've done over the last couple of months it's a wonderful place to relax, unwind and draw.

 I painted these lilies a couple of years ago. It was inspired a huge vase of blooms in The Service Station, Melville, Johannesburg.

The light at lunchtime today was beautiful. I managed to take some photos that will  be the inspiration for a painting or two… White lilies: contre jour .
