Having breakfast at Café Tortoni

One November morning I visited the Café Tortoni remarkable. It is one of the places you can not miss when you travel to Buenos Aires. Spend hours on the site is common (actually in many cafes in the city) I enjoyed taking a coffee with croissants.
The first drawing was my strategy work. I like it more elaborate the final drawing.
I traced the picture on the site and put watercolor in my studio. I specifically asked the waiter to pose, I needed to take a more accurate record of the situation. It was fun.

Thank you all! I really enjoy do quick sketchs! I think, many times its most important than the final result!
