Plaza CafePosted: May 31, 2022
I’m still making my way through Santa Fe sketches from my recent teaching trip there. This one is from a day we spent on the historic plaza in the centre of town. I always love sketching from parks or squares in the middle of a city since there’s always such a variety of subjects to choose from — people, trees, statues, architecture, urban details like lampposts and ornate benches, arts & crafts vendors, musicians and food carts, if you are lucky. And because of all the activity, you can remain fairly invisible if you are a self-conscious sketcher. I chose the Plaza Cafe as my morning demo because I loved the leaning bike and the waiters in their white shirts and bow ties. And if you’re hungry after sketching, stop in there for a bite too. The food was great.
