Sybella's cafe St Felix de Lauragais

March 10 has been a day with snow on the ground and below freezing temperatures. Definetly unusual for the south of France. We have been spring cleaning, but I managed to get in a sketch of one of our favourite cafes. Sybella's is on the corner of the square in St Felix. I worked from a scan of a painting I completed last year. It was a reminder of warmer times.

I used my Pitt black drawing pens. I like these and I have a Sepia and Samguine set. They come in packs of four. The four are; Fine, Small, Medium and Bold. The pens are not watersoluble and the different thicknesses really help when it comes to adding tone.
