The Coffee Shop Break, Joyce Saunders-diop, 2018
“The Coffee Shop Break". Ink on paper. Artwork: 21 cm X 21 cm. Framed: 30 cm X 30 cm
I have been drawing scenes in coffee shop for many years, setting myself at a
table with a good cup of coffee and an arsenal of waterproof permanent ink
felt markers of many different sizes, width, and most importantly, age…
Because a large felt marker aged and used for 6 years gives a soft gentle
shade of grey like no other device would.
Here, a man sits pensively a bag of shopping at his feet, absorbing the music
and ambiance of this interior for a respite, resting and gathering energies
before facing the busy evening of the metropolis of London outside.
