Bates City BBQ

Bates City BBQ is just across the railroad tracks from the Bates City Antique Mall. While my wife was in the Antique Mall I sat outside and did a quick sketch of the restaurant. The sketch is in a watercolor moleskine and I did add the watercolor after I got home. The weather has been absolutely beautiful this Spring and I'm glad I had the chance to get this sketch in while enjoying the nice day.

  1. Don, I love this on SO many levels! (Did you try the BBQ??)

  2. The dark blue washes are particularly nice! Prussian?

  3. Love the mixture of tight line and watery watercolor.

  4. Thank you Kate! We didn't eat there so I don't have any recommendations on the quality of the food.

    Michael - The dark blue is a cobalt blue (if I remember correctly).

    Thanks Marcia.
