We hardly ever go out to eat. Having food delivered from Great Wall Chinese restaurant is a treat, a welcome break from cooking. I did this watercolor November 2011, on a cold, late afternoon from the car.
So if anyone visits Charleston, this place is awesome if you like soul food ( and I do) let me know if my sketch made the Men's room!

It was all decked out for Christmas, but then it ALWAYS looks festive.
Anybody interested in a "scavenger hunt" virtual sketchcrawl? We didn't get to meet up this month, so how about sketching your favorite diner/restaurant/cafe and sharing it here??
There's more on our parent blog about the why and how of this sketch, inspired by David Gentleman's new book, London, You're Beautiful!

The Williamson family gets together each December for a Christmas dinner, normally at a home. This year it was Elaine's turn but her house is in a bit of chaos -- so she hosted all of us at her favorite restaurant.
It was lovely seeing everyone (we had an upstairs room all to ourselves) but Bill and I really don't like their food. The two musicians were good though.
This is nose wheel detail of a Navy T-28 that the museum has in its collection. The T-28 was a trainer for the Navy as well as being used by the other services for similar purposes. The plane is large and though I titled this post "Drawing Exercise" it was fun and challenging to work up this sketch. Lots of details with connectors, bolts, pumps, etc. in the nose wheel. The work also jogged memories of the short period of time after I was commissioned in the Air Force that I served as an aircraft maintenance officer. Good memories!
