Solo Drinkers


Here are a couple of guys drinking alone at a lunchtime session at McSorley's. That's pretty much me too other than I have a sketchbook in front of me. As I've mentioned before, lunchtimes are when to see these bars at their best.

wow ... great job capturing the light as it's reflected off all the frames on the wall. this is a drawing I could study for quite some time ... thanks for sharing.

You're right! Lunch time give you the opportunity to capture so much more contrast with the light pouring in the windows. Have these bars started to save a certain spot for you? Do they offer you a discount because you are essentially giving them world wide advertising through your blog? Are you getting tired of me asking so many questions? :o)

Thanks all, I,m on a bit of a roll with the bar drawings at the moment largely because it's bar weather. Plenty more to come.

Sheila, I'm not getting any kind of perks at the bars yet although a couple of free drinks have come my way (that's a perk actually)
Not getting tired of the questions, happy to have your interest.
