At the cafe today

What used to be Cafe Wednesday has, with a slight drifting of routines, now become Cafe Friday. At present I am carrying a small booklet made from an A3 page of Fabriano watercolour paper, which I stitch together and fold into an old bank bookholder (those were the days!). In the holder I also carry some home made paint dot cards and the obligatory coffee loyalty card.

I made two sketches today to fill up this current booklet, which also includes several pages from my recent trip to Taiwan (more of that later).

A Strawberry Lamington at the Palace Museum in Taipei.

Sketching and drinking coffee at Fu Coffee in Taipei.

Drinking iced coffee and scoffing marscapone and raisin icecream at The Fourth Credit Corporation in Taichung (a very hip repurposed bank building).

    1. Yes, we are great fans of the stamps found in many Asian countries. Taiwan’s were particularly good and plentiful. Some of the most interesting are from small businesses, not only railway stations and museums.

    1. These days I carry a small Nalgene bottle with water in it. I also use a real watercolour brush, generally a travel brush which can be easily kept covered in my bag. (Nalgene is a brand of plastic camping bottles which are very leakproof).
