Cafe sketching in Paris

The plan was to do a little sketch and then I just kept adding more detail.  And then I realized, I really should  plan for the time, because it always takes longer to do a simple sketch than I think it will.

I take back an earlier statement I made about wearing leather

Apparently, you can wear leather when you're a senior,  if you have that grizzled, Parisian thing going for you.

There was a sketch here that I WISHED I had gotten, but I couldn't because the guy was  scoping out the cafe. You really can't make eye contact by accident with those guys.
