"Coffee shop reflection"
Pastel on card
42 x 52

I managed to complete this picture substantially on location, in two visits.  The link to the theme of coffee is straightforward, however I liked the large mirror at one end of the coffee shop.  So reflection in the picture’s title is about that, as well as people ‘taking a moment’.  I have tried to make a pleasing composition through colour, straight/curved lines and spacing figures across the picture.  I was keen to include the figure depicted on the wall to the left, if possible, to give another human dimension.  The framed photos on the back wall help to fill what could have been an empty pictorial space.
